Home-Start Camden & Islington Seeks Donations to Help Support Families with Children Under Five
The local grass-roots charity urgently needs donations to continue supporting parents and their young children, who have been badly hit by the COVID-19 crisis

The COVID-19 pandemic and multiple lockdowns have deepened the gap between inequalities in the UK, and worsened child poverty and in-work poverty, trapping families in the cycle of poverty, with little help from the government. Families struck by the crisis rely on the support of national and local charities, and Home-Start Camden & Islington is making sure to provide families with children under the age of five with confidential, compassionate and totally responsive support.
"Families, especially those with children under five and already marginalised in society, are in need now more than ever before" says Kevin Kibble, Chief Executive at Home-Start Camden & Islington. "Our professional staff and volunteers are working tirelessly to provide both advice and practical support wherever needed, but more and more families are being referred to us for emergency help and increasingly help with food supplies."
Home-Start Camden & Islington is urgently providing food vouchers to families in need, to help relieve the food poverty crisis locally, and is accepting money donations through single or monthly payments. The charity is also calling for individuals to donate tech equipment such as laptops and tablets, for children being home-schooled during the COVID-19 crisis, in vulnerable families who don't have access to technology.
