Who We Are

Emma, Scheme Manager

I have been Scheme manager since July 2012. Prior to working for Home-Start I taught at West Herts College and worked as an Ofsted Inspector for Early Years. I have always worked with families and young children and am passionate about the difference Home-Start makes to family life. I am married with three children.

Rachel, Co-ordinator

I have been part of Home-Start since 2011 when I became a home-visiting volunteer. I then joined the office team as a Coordinator in 2014.  I really enjoy visiting families and being part of their journey of change, and witnessing how the time given by our amazing volunteers can make such a difference.  My background is in the NHS and then childminding for 7 years.  I am Mum to two children.

Gaynore, Group worker

I trained as a Nursery Teacher and worked until I had my children. We then lived abroad for 10 years and only returned to England when my husband’s job brought us back. I then became a Home-Start volunteer whilst teaching part time in Watford. When I left teaching, I became the Home-Start group worker working in conjunction with several Children Centres in groups with extra support for families. I am now involved in running a group for Home-Start families which I find very rewarding.

Allison, Community Fundraiser

I joined Home-Start in July 2016 as a Community Fundraiser and have worked for Charities and families for most of my working career. Before Home-Start for a charity called Norwood and previous to this with Peace Hospice Care. I believe it’s important for the community to support local charities which support local people. I will need lots of help to do all the wonderful new events we are planning! Get in touch if you would like to help in any way whether you need some work experience, planning an event or are a local business looking for a local charity to support. I am married with two children.
