  • Financial and legal expertise
  • IT knowledge
  • Human resources experience
  • PR & media skills
  • Knowledge of family support issues in the community

Trustees meet 6-9 times a year and additional time will be required to fulfill certain tasks or roles to support the charity in delivering its vision.

Home-Start Epsom Ewell and Banstead Trustees have a variety of skills and experience and are from a wide range of backgrounds. Being a Trustee can be hard work but it is also very rewarding, giving many chances for personal development and the chance to give something back to your local community. Trustees can access training and support from the Home-Start UK Regional Coordinator and there are opportunities to network with Trustees from other schemes in the region.

Without volunteer Trustees Home-Start Epsom Ewell and Banstead couldn’t function and both families and children wouldn’t get the support they need.
