Children's Centres - Home-Start

homestart greenwich

Home-Start Greenwich is an independent charity affiliated to Home-start UK that has been offering support and helping families with young children in the Royal Borough of Greenwich for over 25 years.

At the heart of our work is the home visiting volunteer support whereby we support families with young children where parenting begins in the home. We do this via a 1 :1 Home-Visiting Service, delivered by volunteers offering weekly support to families in their own homes.

We have two Ofsted registered nursery settings supporting parents with quality childcare jointly providing 96 places for children 0 to 5 in the Plumstead area.

Our services are complemented by our partnership work with Royal Greenwich delivering  children centre services from seven settings. 

Our local Home-Start Centre can be located at

Cardwell Children's Centre
