We are seeking to recruit new trustees who can steer HOST through its next stages of development.

Interest from people with finance (treasurer) backgrounds are particularly welcome.

HOST has an income of around £1m and a staff of over 40. The Board meets in the early evening every six weeks and is supported by two sub-committees, Finance/HR and Quality Assurance.

HOST is one of the largest Home-Starts in the UK, supporting  over 4000 families a year through a variety of projects; parents supporting parents with a child under the age of five, breastfeeding support services at two hospitals, speech and language work, reaching out to dads and an innovative parent/infant mental health project.

The people we support are often those who are reluctant to engage with services and who struggle to cope due to lack of confidence, poor mental health, poverty, social isolation and  poor parenting skills. We help them to build confidence and  resilience through non-judgemental support that takes place at a time that suits them and where they feel most comfortable.
