Home-Start has grown from one scheme set up in 1973 to hundreds of local branches, of which we are one.  We were established in 2008 and we cover the Chichester area, from Camelsdale in the north to the Witterings and Selsey on the south coast and from Compton in the west to Wisborough Green in the east.

We offer a unique service to local families with young children.  We train volunteers, who are parents themselves, to work with families in their own homes and in groups.

Welcome to Family Group


Home-Start Chichester & District Family Group in a friendly, non-judgemental group which meets once a week, providing a place to chat and make friends with other families.

Each week there are activities planned for the children with a mid-session healthy snack and drink.  We also have access to the fantastic sensory garden and you are welcome to do your own thing and play with the toys and make use of the garden too.

The group takes place every Wednesday for 1 – 2.30pm in The Green Room at the Chichester Nursery School Children and Family Centre.  Please call us if you would like to come along as places are limited.
