Trustees What they do and Can you help?

Trustees – Who they are and what they do

Home-Start MAJIK is governed and managed by a group of Trustees. Trustees are all unpaid volunteers who come from a range of backgrounds and communities across Argyll & Bute.

Trustees work in partnership with staff and volunteers to support families and to give children the best start in life. They are appointed on the basis of their interest in Home-Start MAJIK and by their skills.

Roles and responsibilities are defined through Home-Start UK training, to make sure Trustees have the necessary qualities, skills and knowledge to govern effectively and responsibly ensuring that legal and financial obligations are met.

Some of our most exciting current projects are entirely funded by charitable trusts. In recent years, trusts have funded work to broaden our approach to evaluation; helping us develop our monitoring and evaluation systems so we can demonstrate the effectiveness of our service for families; and work to strengthen the governance of local Home-Start Majik trustee board.

Do you have the time to be a trustee?

Our trustees meet approximately every other month to discuss matters arising from staff meetings, policies, approve spending and help apply for funding.
