Home Start Elstree & Borehamwood handed grant
A charity that brightens the lives of struggling families has been handed a cash grant.
Home Start, based in Shakespeare Drive, Borehamwood, was given an £800 cash grant from a Hertfordshire County Councillor.
Volunteers at the charity offer friendship and informal support to parents with young children, to help them overcome death, illness and isolation.
As long as they have a child under the age of five, families living in Borehamwood and Hertsmere are eligible to receive support.
If you think you could volunteer or benefit from the scheme, contact Home Start on 0208 953 5082. Volunteers must have parenting experience.
