Home-Start Norfolk commissioned Steve Allman to undertake our biggest Home-Start evaluation to date, which saw us gather feedback from over 400 of the charity’s key stakeholders, including families, volunteers and referrers.
Home-Start Norfolk was formed in April 2017 by the merger of five local Home-Start schemes in Kings Lynn, Norwich, Great Yarmouth, Swaffham and Breckland. Collectively, the charities supported almost 600 Norfolk families in the last year alone, helping parents to feel less isolated, cope with mental health issues, increase confidence and more.
Our evaluation engaged 413 key stakeholders from all schemes, in addition to interviewing each scheme and analysing key data about the charity’s impact. Our findings were extremely positive and it’s clear that Home-Start Norfolk is having a tremendous impact on local families across this vast, rurally isolated county.
