HSS has welcomed three new trustees who have started with the charity just in time for its 20th anniversary.
The trustees play a key role in helping the charity push forward and help the office team and volunteers support families in Slough.
Carmen Nader has a background of senior leadership experience with a successful history of strengthening and restructuring business operations, streamlining processes and building strong client relationships. She has been on a board of a volunteering management committee in a corporate environment.
She said: “I want to focus on setting the events and fundraising strategic direction for HSS, by developing and raising HSS’ profile and by identifying and winning the interest of local business sponsorships and investors. We want to ensure the charity does not fail the vulnerable families who heavily rely on its support and overcome challenging lifestyle difficulties.”
Emily Sampson is currently taking a career break, following a 20-year career in the civil service.
Becoming a trustee for Home Start Slough has allowed her to build on her knowledge and interest in health and wellbeing. Emily has two primary school-aged children, one of whom has additional needs, and has been a volunteer for HSS for three years and is just starting to work with her third family.
And finally David Bayliss Group Director of Business Improvement for a Global Slough based Aerospace organisation.
He has extensive experience in major improvement programmes, quality and business compliance gained internationally. He is married with three grown up children and a large extended family.
David added: “It was through my daughter that I first became interested in Home-Start Slough. My daughter works for Home-Start in West Sussex and constantly told me of the great work done by the charity. So I am very pleased to be joining HSS as a Director Trustee.”
