About Us

Home-Start Bradford District started in 1999 covering the North of Bradford. Home-Start Bradford District is based at the Thornbury Centre and has expanded over the years.  We now support families across different parts of the Bradford District, primarily in Keighley and the Better Start Bradford area of Bradford Moor, Bowling & Barkerend and Little Horton.  We are able to support families beyond these areas of Bradford and are seeking funding to support families wherever they live in Bradford.

Home-Start Bradford District grew when it was recognised that there was a local need for peer support for families around the Bradford Moor area and beyond. Home-Start Bradford District was supported locally, evolving into an independent charity and Company Limited by Guarantee.

From starting with one worker, Home-Start Bradford District has grown to include 7 paid staff and over 70 volunteers. From 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018, 152 referrals were received and 115 families received support at home.  We supported 313 children, 31 of whom had a disability.   A total of 724 volunteer visits took place with a duration of 1,553 hours. Well done everyone!
