Welcome to Home-Start Central Lancashire

Home-Start Central Lancashire is a Family Support Charity based in Chorley who works with families, using a trauma informed approach and have at least one child under the age of eleven. We support families who live in communities across West Lancashire, Chorley, South Ribble and Greater Preston. We are a local branch of Home-Start UK and as such we have to pass strict Quality Assurance tests in order to operate. Home-Start UK provide infrastructure across the UK for all local Home-starts but they do not fund us and so we operate as an independent local charity.

Each year Home-Start Central Lancashire aims to support at least 200 families in the area. And, while we are a locally-focused and locally-run charity, we are part of a network of over 260 Home-Start schemes across the UK.

Please browse our website to see if we can help you and your family. But if you would rather speak to someone from Home-Start Central Lancashire please call us on 01257 241636 or send us a message on our Contact Us page.
