Home-Start Camden Trustees Needed
Home-Start Camden’s (HSC) mission is: ‘to enable Camden families experiencing stress or difficulties to meet the needs of their children under five’. Since 1995, the charity has provided a home-visiting family support service in which trained volunteers offer confidential support, friendship and practical help to families in the Borough of Camden who are going through a difficult time. Many families have a multiple range of problems including disability or health issues, isolation and lack of support, multiple births, low income or poor housing conditions.
The large network of volunteers are recruited, trained and coordinated by a small team of paid staff, and ongoing funding is essential for the smooth running of the family and volunteer support service.
HSC is governed by its unpaid directors, the Board of Trustees, including the Chair, the Treasurer and the other elected directors. The Board meets every two months and delegates the day to day operations of the charity to the Manager. Each Trustee takes a lead responsibility or contributes to a Sub-committee to assist with the running of the organisation.
