Home-Start Kernow has received £390,197 from The Big Lottery to help support families across Cornwall for the next three years. It will make a huge difference to families who are struggling on their own with issues such as isolation, disability or illness. In the current difficult economic climate, families can find it really hard to cope and Home-Start support for families is needed now more than ever. We want to thank everyone that has worked so hard to help secure our future.
We are always looking for ways we can improve our service that we provide to families in Cornwall. Can you help us by providing some feedback? It can be anonymous if you wish.
