Home-Start Trustee Roles

Give a little time – become a Home-Start Trustee and empower families with us!

We are always interested to hear from people who would like to join our Board. In particular, we would welcome people with skills in Sales, Marketing and/or Fundraising.

We are looking for enthusiastic people with an understanding of how challenging being a parent can be to join our Trustee Board. 

Full details of the Trustee’s Job role can be found by clicking on the ‘Job Description’ button above.

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.

Our vision is to see a society where every local parent has the support they need to give their children the best possible start in life. We see what a difference we make in empowering families who are facing tough challenges such as mental or physical illness, loneliness and isolation or bereavement. Our charity has been doing so successfully for 40 years.  

Right now, it is a difficult and challenging time for so many families, and the Trustee role is key to the success of the scheme in supporting local families.

We provide early intervention, volunteer-led Home Visiting Service, and specialised Family Support Groups in Royston and Buntingford. We also run a School-Readiness Programme, helping families prepare their children for school.

Our Trustees regularly review the most important issues, such as finance, health and safety and the provision of an excellent service to the community. Being a Trustee, sharing key decision-making for a cause you believe in, is very rewarding and gives wonderful opportunities to get involved in every aspect of managing an organisation.

We are looking for enthusiastic people with an understanding of how challenging being a parent can be to join our Trustee Board.  

If you are keen to offer your perspective and insight and gain new skills and knowledge, we’d love to hear from you.

We offer a thorough Induction Programme to help you settle in and learn how you can quickly add value, and we will meet reasonable expenses. We have five Board meetings a year during the daytime and at least one ‘Trustees’ Away Day’ to agree our future strategy.
