Could you spare some time to help?

Published on: 30 Sep 2016

A CHARITY which helps families is recruiting two trustees to join its current eight-member trustee board team. 

Home-start Bristol (HSB) supports families living in South Gloucestershire and Bristol who have at least one child under five and who are experiencing problems affecting their well-being as a family. 

The support is provided by trained volunteers under the guidance of professional co-ordinators who visit a family each week, offering support, friendship and practical assistance. 

During 2015/16 the charity, which has six part-time employees and 78 volunteers, helped 134 families. It expects to support at least that number in the next 12 months.

Trustees are unpaid, but reasonable expenses can be claimed.

Board meetings are held monthly, usually on a Wednesday or Thursday morning at the Greenway Centre, Doncaster Road, Southmead, Bristol BS10 5PY

For further details please contact scheme manager Beverley Symonds by emailing or calling 0117 950 1170.

Alternatively you can get in touch with the chair of trustees Sue Otty by emailing or calling 0756 8503481.
