Fund Raising

twins_sister_holding_cardEvery donation, big or small, can make a difference to vulnerable local families. We’d love it if you’d raise funds for us and would love to hear your ideas. Maybe you could gain sponsorship through an activity, hold a quiz night, bungee jump or sit in a bath of beans! Either way, we can’t wait to see the photos!

Local partnerships

Home-Start East Surrey is keen to develop partnerships within the East Surrey area, to ensure a better future for local children and families. Even small donations or gifts in kind can make a huge difference to us. We are pleased to have received support from a range of organisations, trusts and businesses, to whom we are very grateful.

If you would like to work together with Home-Start East Surrey, we would love to hear from you!

Raising funds

Fundraising can be fun and rewarding! We are keen to run events throughout the year, for fundraising and also to increase awareness. By supporting these, companies and organisations have the opportunity to enjoy a positive feeling with their members, staff, customers and people across our area.


There are lots of ways you could help, including:

  • Sponsorship of an event we’re running
  • Encouraging employee or member fundraising activities
  • Choose us as your charity of the year
  • Organising an event on behalf of Home-Start East Surrey

Home-Start staff are always willing to help and support any fundraising efforts.

Gifts in kind

When companies or organisations donate gifts in kind it saves us money. It means we don’t have to buy certain items that we need, so reducing our running costs.

In kind donations can be large or small and every donation helps.

Become a Corporate Partner

If your company is looking for a good cause to support that is active in your local community, please contact the Home-Start office to discuss ways you could work alongside us to raise funds to expand our service.

Your company would benefit from becoming associated with a successful home-visiting family support charity and you could be touching the lives of your employees.

We would be happy to come and speak to you and your staff about our work and the different ways to help.

Easy Fundraising

Donating to us is easy, using My Donate or Just Text Giving (text the message: HSES22 followed by the amount you want to donate e.g. to donate £10, text HSES22 £10 to this number: 70070). You can also donate as you shop through Easy Fundraising. Just choose ‘Home-Start East Surrey’ as your good cause and every time you shop online and we receive a donation! Simple!

We need your help

Home-Start East Surrey is a local charity which supports vulnerable families with young children. We train and prepare volunteers to visit parents in their home, supporting them through a range of difficulties including disability, bereavement and multiple births.

Your money will enable us to help families with young children deal with whatever life throws at them. We support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children, providing them with the best possible start in life. Thank you.
