Trustee Vacancies

Are you looking for an opportunity to use and develop your knowledge and skills in new and creative ways?  Do you wish to give something extra to your community by helping to run a small, local charity?  Do you have the drive and ambition to contribute to the strategic development of an organisation that provides support to families in need?

 If so, Home-Start Newark might have the role for you!

 Home-Start Newark has been operating at the heart of its community for over 30 years, providing support to families when they need it the most.  Currently based in the recently constructed Castle House building in Newark (working from home during the pandemic) we have a small friendly staff team who work alongside our volunteer home visitors, family group workers and Trustees.

We are currently looking for a number of dynamic individuals to join our Trustee board to assist with managing and developing the strategy of our organisation.

The board holds approximately 8 main meetings per year with additional occasional strategy sessions taking place and the opportunity to join sub-committees and lead and participate in other areas of the scheme’s operations.

 We are seeking individuals with experience or knowledge of the following areas:


  • Publicity and marketing
  • Fundraising/grant applications
  • IT/Website management

In addition to the above we are also seeking a family representative who has had experience of receiving support from a Home-Start scheme or from a similar organisation to provide a much needed family voice to the board

Although these roles are voluntary reasonable payment for certain costs can be reimbursed and of course the benefits of volunteering are plentiful.

 If you feel you have the skills we are looking for and would like the opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of local people please contact us for further details and a role description at
