Home-Start Horizon’s CEO, Stuart Sullivan, in his keynote speech at the event, spoke of the challenges faced by the City’s children with a backdrop of funding cuts, closure of children’s centres and rising poverty. The EXPO, called It Takes A City To Raise A Child, puts forward the students’ manifesto for change – aiming to urge communities to help improve the life chances of local children.

A documentary was unveiled focussing on Gurvinder who was supported by Home-Start Horizons with her two children.  Gurvinder came through adversity to now having thriving children and volunteering for Home-Start Horizons.
