Up to Three Trustees, including a Treasurer Designate
A childs earliest years are irreplaceable. Without a stable, loving and nurturing environment, a child will not develop the vital foundations they need. Home-Start is there for parents when they need us most, because childhood cant wait.
Our local community network of trained volunteers and expert support helps families with young children through their most challenging times. Were tackling some of the big issues facing families today, with more families than ever coming to us because theyre struggling with mental health and wellbeing; loneliness and isolation; building supportive, nurturing, loving relationships with their children; money worries and financial pressures.
As communities seek to recover from the pandemic, Home-Start is needed more than ever. The pandemic has drained family resilience and childrens wellbeing. Many families feel anxious, isolated and unable to access support, and the economic impact will be most acutely felt amongst the most vulnerable.
We are seeking three new Trustees, including a Treasurer Designate, to further broaden the breadth and agility of our Board at this pivotal moment. Working with a newly appointed Chair, you will be part of a Trustee Board at Home-Start UK the central body of our Home-Start federation that is committed to growing the national reach, profile and presence of the Home-Start movement.
We are looking candidates who bring the experience of financial management and oversight at a senior level that would prepare them to step into the Treasurer role and, in our other two Trustee appointments, are particularly keen to attract candidates who bring at least one of the following areas of expertise digital, data and design transformation experience; supporter engagement, marketing and campaigning or people and culture transformation.
In return, we offer a fulfilling opportunity to grow the impact that the Home-Start movement can have for families.
We actively encourage applications from people with diverse experience and backgrounds and are seeking trustees who will bring to the Board the skills, experience and commitment to drive progress on diversity and inclusion as a feature of our transformation.
