Company description History Home-Start Worthing and Adur started supporting families in September 2001 and in December 2009 became an incorporated company limited by guarantee. Our Scheme is managed by a number of Trustees, made up of local people who are keen to see families effectively supported. They come from a variety of backgrounds, both professional and non-professional and use their range of skills to lead in the vision and planning for the scheme. All of our Trustees are volunteers.
Core Belief Home-Start Worthing and Adur believes that children need a happy and secure childhood and that parents play the key role in giving their children a good start in life, helping them achieve their full potential.
