Home-Start Camden & Islington

Support and friendship for families


Are you a professional wanting to refer a family?

If you are a family support worker, health visitor, doctor, social worker or any other professional working with families and you feel someone would benefit from our service, you can make a referral on their behalf, with their consent.

Please phone us on 020 7424 1603 to discuss the family situation or complete our Referral Form (downloadable using one of the links below). Note you will need a PDF reader installed on your computer to read some these files.

The family needs to:

  • live in the borough of Camden or the borough of Islington
  • have one or more pre-school children and
  • be in need of a little extra help from a trained volunteer with parenting experience.

Information Pack for Referrers

We have prepared the documents below, these will help you to make a referral or request a volunteer for you and your family. Click on the buttons below to download the forms and documents. Note that the referral form is in both PDF and MS Word formats. If you cannot edit the MS Word format document please download and print the PDF version.

‘Home-Start Camden is a friendly service. Parents supporting parents – what could be better. It’s a needs based support and it feels good to send families onto HSC. It’s a very good family friendly service.’

‘With Home-Start Camden there is no time restraint and that means the family can be supported for longer; for as long as they need help or until the family feel secure to stand strong alone.’

Waiting Lists

We do not operate a waiting list: family support is governed by the availability and suitability of our trained volunteers. We will always give you guidance as to the current situation regarding volunteer availability.
