All net proceeds generated from the charge on Morrison’s single-use carrier bags are used to support good causes and Home-Start North Dorset, via The Morrisons Foundation, have been given a grant to fund the new ‘Early Support Scheme’.

This ‘Early Support Scheme’ will offer immediate short term support for up to 6 weeks with one of our experienced home visitors. This is offered to help families facing a short term crisis or unexpected event, such as move to area, relationship breakdown, death or sudden illness, accident or short notice of appointments that a family may have a difficulty in accessing. We can visit up to twice per week providing practical help and emotional support to help a family cope with an unexpected event. We could also provide this Early Support if there is expected to be a wait for our long term support.
