At Home- Start Stafford and District our volunteer Trustees help guide our scheme and contribute towards its leadership and direction.
Trustees come from all walks of life, with different experiences and skills to bring to the role.
They sit on the trustee board, which governs the Home-Start Stafford and District charity. They plan how we will achieve our goals, manage our funds, find funding, and file returns to regulatory bodies. The board meets once a month for a few hours, but Trustees should expect to spend 8 – 10 hours a month on their duties.
We don’t ask for any special qualifications to become a 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 the Stafford, Stone and surrounding areas are all that are needed.
In return, you will get a real sense of satisfaction that you have helped local families. Also being a Trustee will enhance your skills and knowledge, build confidence and provide opportunities for personal development for future employment, provide a focus for an active retirement or a sense that your spare time has been put to good use.
If you are interested in helping us in this way please contact our Scheme Organiser, on 01785 283023 for an informal chat.
