Joining the Board of Trustees

We’ve won another Big Lottery grant and funding from the Army Covenant Fund – now we need you!

Trustees Wanted

Home-Start Kennet is a long-established local charity, based in Pewsey.

We have just won our second major Big Lottery award towards funding our 2016-19 FACES project (Families and Communities Engaged/Supported).

FACES will see us helping more families in the Devizes, Marlborough, Pewsey and Tidworth community areas, expanding our service into Chippenham and Calne and increasing support for the many military/veteran families settling in Wiltshire.

We have also been awarded 3 years funding by the Army Covenant Fund working with partners to support military and veteran families along side the support we receive from The Royal British Legion.

We have a lively and active Board of Trustees, and we now want to recruit new trustees to join us and get involved with our valuable work.  As well as people who are in sympathy with our mission and with our values, we would like to strengthen our management and governance capabilities in the following areas:

Marketing, social media, legal matters, mental health, fundraising, HR

This is not an exclusive list and we would be very interested to hear what you would offer. Past volunteers and people who have been helped by Home-Start are welcome to apply. Familiarity with Chippenham, Calne, Devizes or Tidworth would be useful too.

The formal commitment is six Board meetings per year.  In addition, trustees are asked to serve on at least one of our subcommittees or engage with other activities in support of the Scheme between meetings.
