Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I am climbing Ben Nevis to raise money for Home-Start Butser, this is not only a real personal challenge for me, but also a way for me to give back to a charity that has provided me and many others with such needed support. If you feel able to donate to this cause and support me to fulfil a dream, as well as being a positive disabled role model for my two young sons, I would be eternally grateful.

Home-Start Butser supports any family with a child under 5 who need just a bit of extra help and care for any reason. This could include isolation, disability, mental health, bereavement. For me it was an extra pair of hands once a week due to my physical disability. Our volunteer, Rachel was awesome and gave our family so much, she gave me time, a range of practical and amazing emotional support, and the children loved her visits! The support she gave and the memories she helped us make are priceless.

Any donation big or small will assist the charity to continue to train awesome volunteers and provide such invaluable tailored 1:1 support and wonderful groups.

Being a parent can be very challenging, especially when children are young. Many parents feel exhausted and overwhelmed by the stresses of family life. For some parents it’s a particular struggle because they are also coping with issues such as post-natal depression, their or their child’s illness or disability, isolation or multiple births. That’s when parents need support. That’s when Home-Start Butser can help. A carefully selected volunteer, who has parenting experience, can visit regularly and offer emotional and practical support. This friendly parent-to-parent support is a simple yet effective way of enabling families to get back on track.
