Home-Start Medway Boot fair

Enjoyed the sun at Greenfields Bootfair on Sunday 20th August raising £153.11 to help support our families.

Thank you to all our volunteers, families and staff for donating lots of goodies to sell. Thanks also goes to the young family who kindly donated a buggy for a family in need.


Anything left will be sorted and retained for families or donated to our REAP partner Strood Community Project for their charity shop

Pop ‘n’ Play is here to stay!

The Henry Smith Charity has awarded a grant to support Pop ‘n’ Play

Pop’n’ Play is in a fantastic position thanks to The Henry Smith Charity who have agreed to fund the running of the group for the Next 3 years. This is fantastic news for the families and children who benefit weekly from the group.

We know that isolation is not just in term time and that families can feel the stress of school holidays, so we are now in the process of looking to extend the hours and move away from Term Time only, so watch this space!!

More good news! The Coop Local Community Fund has selected us to be a Local Cause to raise funds for Pop ‘n’ Play

We are hoping that with this additional support we can look at soft play equipment or new toys to provide safe fun activities for the group.
