A Home-Start Trustee is a volunteer who sits on the Trustee Board of a local scheme. Being a Trustee is all about the governance of the charity - making sure things are done but not necessarily doing them.

Trustees aren't responsible for the day to day running of a scheme, but they do carry out a wide range of duties and are responsible for making the charity effective, providing overall direction and maintaining sound management of funds.

Being a Trustee can be hard work but it is also rewarding, giving many opportunities for personal development and the chance to give something back to your local community.


Our Trustees come from all walks of life, bringing their experiences and individual skills to our local scheme. The kind of skills that are in demand are business or governance, health,  education, finance or HR. We are currently particularly looking for somebody with experience of bid writing. But you don't need special qualifications to be a special Trustee - common sense, an ability to work as part of a team, an understanding of the pressures facing parents today and a genuine interest in supporting parents in your community are just as important to us.
