Home-Start High Peak depends heavily on donations to fund our work with parents and children.  Everyone needs help at some time in their life… so please, help us to make a difference to a child’s life today.

Where your money goes

  • 90p is spent on our charitable activities across the Home-Start network
  • 8p is invested to generate future income/fundraising
  • 2p is spent on governance and administration

Our cost effectiveness

On average it costs just £1,000 – £1,200 to support a family for an entire year. We use volunteers to support families, which is our unique way of helping. It also keeps overheads down. We can prevent family breakdown and crisis which may involve costly, statutory services.

What your donation provides

You can support us by making us your charity you support with your Co op membership. If you go online and log into your membership or become a member you can search for the chosen charities within a 15 miles radius of your home address. Then when you shop at any co op outlet 1% will be coming to Home Start High Peak.

Are you celebrating a special occasion or looking for an unusual present for someone who is difficult to buy for? Perhaps a donation to Home-Start High Peak would make the perfect gift? When Home-Start UK volunteer Diane married Steve, they decided to ask family and friends for donations to Home-Start instead of presents. You could ask your guests to donate via text, cheque or a collection box.

A gift for generations

If you share our belief that children deserve the best start in life please consider remembering Home-Start in your will. Naturally, when you write your will, you will want to take care of your loved ones first. But if your estate has extra funds, you may wish to consider including a gift to Home-Start. Home-Start UK recommends that you seek appropriate professional advice when writing or updating your will, ideally from a solicitor.
