‘Telling Their Stories’ in Greater Manchester

Listen to Anita’s Story


In 2015, the six Greater Manchester Home-Starts embarked on ‘Telling Their Stories’, a short documentary and a series of photo essays showing the journeys of some of the families we support.

Listen to Paul’s Story


In 2018, ‘Telling Their Stories’ has been re-visited, through a series of podcasts, with four brave and inspiring Home-Start families sharing their own journeys.  Paul, Anita, Katie and Nafisa give an insight into life in Greater Manchester in 2018.

From raising three children as a single dad, through to the experiences of seeking asylum, dealing with poor mental health and coping with domestic abuse.

Listen to Nafisa’s story


Each podcast tells a story of individual resilience, overcoming adversity and the role that Home-Start and their volunteers have played in changing a family’s life for the better.

Listen to Katie’s Story


The families we support are amazing – resourceful, resilient, and striving to give their children the best start in life.  We need your support to help them.
