Home-Start West Berkshire are pleased to announce £111,000 of funding over three years from the Henry Smith Trust to provide a Maternal Mental Health Service. It will enable the scheme to continue to provide their successful Postnatal Peer Support Group in Newbury and Thatcham and provide home-visiting volunteers to support parents with their mental health concerns.

“The funding is a real boost to our scheme and will provide stability for our much needed Postnatal Depression and Depression Support services. We are hugely grateful to the Henry Smith Trust for helping us to make a difference.” Grace Ryder, Scheme Manager
