Although we are part of Home-Start UK, every scheme like ours is run independently by a board of volunteer trustees.
The trustees have overall responsibility for the management and general running of Home-Start Slough, as well as the employment of seven staff.
There are currently 7 board members who are elected at our annual general meeting in October. Some previous committee experience is desirable, but not essential, as a full induction and ongoing training is available.
Members are expected to attend board meetings every six weeks. There are also four sub committees – HR, finance, events and fundraising – and members may also sit on one or more of these to progress work that has been identified.
We would be interested in hearing from anyone who thinks they have useful skills and experience that could be used in a trustee role. Please contact us for more information.
