Lydia's Story

Since Lydia's dad lost his job, the family is at breaking point. Lydia feels scared and worried every day. No child should have to suffer like this. With your help, we can reach out to families like Lydia's and give them the support they need – in whatever way they need it.

When parents suffer tragedy and hardship, children can suffer for a lifetime. At Home-Start, we help families in crisis, so that children like Lydia can go back to enjoying the childhood they deserve. Your gift could give Lydia the lifeline he needs.

What will my donation be used for? 

Home-Start Caithness receives around 60% of its total funding from grants with the Highland Council and NHS Highland.  The remaining 40% is raised through fundraising events, donations and numerous applications to grant making trusts and organisations.  In the current climate, the demand for our service has increased, while the amount of money that we receive has decreased.  We cannot do without individuals' generosity and as the saying goes, every little really does help!  All money donated is used directly to support local families in the Caithness area. 

Your donations will help us make a lasting difference for generations to come.
