Becoming a trustee

Could you become part of Home-Start Kernow ?

Michelle is a Home Visiting volunteer and Trustee









Volunteers really are the life-blood of Home-Start Kernow.  Our volunteer trustees are no exception.  They shape, guide and drive the organisation forward, enabling us to carry out our vital support work throughout the county.

Get involved

There are many reasons to want to become a trustee of Home Start Kernow but one of the most important reasons is ‘because you have something to offer’ and are passionate about supporting families in Cornwall.

For the right person, becoming a trustee is simple. If you can think both strategically and creatively and are willing to speak your mind, as well as be open minded then you are exactly the sort of person we are looking for.

Many people come to the role of trustee following a career in business, but we also need young, fresh ideas to take Home Start Kernow towards the future.  As well as people who have experience the Home-Start service; so if you have been helped by us or volunteered for us we welcome your expertise.

We are keen to hear from anyone who can help us shape and deliver the vision for the charity, especially if you are fabulous at marketing and communications; have great IT skills; interested in figures & budgets; or familiar with Social Media.

  • Finance
  • Marketing and communications
  • Fundraising
