Home Start RKH – trustee recruitment

Jul 5, 2022 | Uncategorized

Home-Start Richmond, Kingston & Hounslow (RK&H)

We are looking for trustees to join our Board and help us achieve our vision for supporting families in Richmond, Kingston & Hounslow.

We are a local charity supporting families and children in RK&H through our network of volunteers working with families in their own homes and in other settings across our three boroughs. Our tried and tested model, placing trained and experienced volunteers alongside families needing help, has been working for over 25 years and evidence shows it to be successful in delivering valued and effective support to families in crisis.

Whether you are an experienced trustee or want to join a board for the first time and have lived experience to bring, we would love to hear from you. We aim to be a diverse and inclusive charity, and are committed to reflecting the diversity of the communities we support in our own governance. We warmly welcome applicants of all ages and backgrounds, including for example, black, Asian or minority ethnic, people under the age of 40, fathers, carers, and people with experience of physical or mental illness or disability. This is a voluntary position, but reasonable expenses are reimbursed.

What do our trustees do?

They set the vision and lead the charity: deciding how it is run and ensuring it does what it was set up to do. Their tasks include:

Strategic decision making, governance and shaping of new projects

Setting budgets and monitoring expenditure

Raising income to deliver the services required

Quality assurance and risk management

Supporting and challenging the Director and Senior Management Team

Who are we looking for?

You must live in Richmond, Kingston or Hounslow and we are looking particularly for residents of Hounslow and Kingston.

You must be passionate about supporting children and families.

You must be able to commit to understanding the governance, workings of a charity and role of a trustee.

While a trustee’s role is flexible, you will need to be able to dedicate 5-10 hours per month for meetings and charity business.

Full details of the role including the job description and information on how to apply can be found on our website  homestart-rkh.org.uk. The deadline for applications is 31 July 2022.
