Welcome to Reach Volunteering. We are a community and registered charity that connects people, skills and good causes.

To apply for this role, and any other on our platform, you need to be based in the UK, have at least three years of experience using the skills you wish to volunteer in a professional capacity or have lived experience (for trustee roles). Read more about our criteria.

Home-Start Epsom, Ewell and Banstead is recruiting Trustees to help us support families in need.

What will you be doing?

Home-Start Epsom, Ewell and Banstead (HSEEB) is a voluntary organisation committed to promoting the welfare of families and children. Staff and Volunteers offer regular support, including providing emotional and practical help to families in the families’ own homes and connecting families with specialist services within the community.

 

We are looking to recruit Trustees who will increase the range of skills and experience on the Board to help make the best decisions for HSEEB and our families. There is no requirement for you to have been a trustee before for this role. However, you do need to be passionate about improving the lives of children and the families we support.

 

You will be good at working with others, ready to speak up and ask questions, be thoughtful and open to learning and able to stand back to see the bigger picture. You must take the responsibilities of a Trustee seriously.

 

We are looking to better reflect the experiences of our community, to bring the skills and experiences of diverse Trustees to the Board, as well as recruiting Trustees with lived experience of or insight into socio-economic disadvantage.

 

We would like to hear from people who can bring some of the following skills and expertise:

Contracting; Governance; Event Planning; Bid Writing; Early Years; Mental Health; IT and Media

 

An enhanced disclosure check will be required.
