You can donate online here in less than two minutes, and if you’d like to talk to us about how your donation will make a difference, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
“My volunteer is like another mum. I look forward to her coming – she gets me.”
“It was that little drop of support and help you get that sort of has ripples on your life…It was that someone else in your life that was concerned about you and there are people who are volunteering to come along and help you. That is something that leaves such a warm feeling in my heart.”
“Looking back, I don’t know how I would’ve coped without their help…I felt incredibly isolated and helpless before. I felt a huge turning point in my life because I had the right support.”

Leave a gift in your will
Coronavirus has changed life for all of us. Many of us are probably thinking about what we’d like to do to protect our loved ones and the causes we care about. Please talk to us if you are.
Leaving a legacy is a very personal decision. By choosing to leave a gift in your will, you can help make sure that help is available for local families to live better. Please feel free to call us on 0141 570 8735. We are happy to talk through the ways your legacy will make a difference.

If you would like to make a donation in recognition of the legal advice you receive, it will help to provide more support for children and families. Legal advice will help you make the best choices for your loved ones as well as your charities. Your solicitor will insert the appropriate clause in your will. They will need to quote our name and charity number: Home-Start Glasgow South, charity number: SC 030131.
Thank you for thinking about investing in future services for local families with young children.
Here are some websites you can use to host your fundraiser and collect sponsorship. There are also other ways that you can raise funds for us online simply by doing what you’d be doing anyway!
If you shop online you can raise funds by using websites like EasyFundraising (or AmazonSmile if you’re an Amazon shopper) – these will send a percentage of the value of your purchase directly to us, without costing you an extra penny! It’s as simple as signing up, nominating us as your charity, and browsing as normal.
Just Giving and The Big Give offer fantastic platforms from which to tell supporters about your challenge and collect donations online. If you’d like some assistance setting up accounts or fundraising pages on any of these sites, our Community Fundraiser, Caitlin, will be happy to help. Give her a call on 0141 570 8735, or email her here.
