Home-Start Trustee – Job Description

Trustee (Volunteer)

Our Trustees play a vital role in making sure that Home-Start achieves its core purpose. They oversee the overall management and administration of the charity. They also ensure that Home-Start has a clear strategy and that our work and goals are in line with our vision.

Board members have a collective responsibility. This means that trustees always act as a group and not as individuals.


In addition to the above statutory duties, each trustee should use any specific skills, knowledge or experience they have to help the board of trustees reach sound decisions. This may involve scrutinising board papers, leading discussions, focusing on key issues, providing advice and guidance on new initiatives, or other issues in which the trustee has special expertise.

Person specification

Expected time commitment

Although most meetings are now taking place face to face, there are possibilities for Trustees to attend some meetings virtually when necessary.

“We’re there for parents when they need us the most, because childhood can’t wait.”
