After a very busy year here at Home-Start HOST, we held our AGM at Ryecroft Hall on the 19th December 2018. We decided to hold a smaller AGM this year, and hold our annual volunteer awards & celebration in the summer of 2019, to coincide with Volunteers’ Week (more on this later in the year).

As part of our AGM we produce and present our Annual Report, which you can read here (and here for our accounts). Despite the many pressures charities are facing in this difficult climate, HOST is in a strong position. This year’s report also includes some anonymous case studies from families we have supported. They are very moving and really demonstrate the impact Home-Start support can have.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support, and best wishes for 2019.

The Home-Start HOST Team
