Home-Start Cotswolds was launched in 2006. Our
office is based in Cirencester, and there are five
part-time members of staff.
Overall management of our scheme is the
responsibility of a Management Committee which meets 6 times a year.
The committee is made up of a group of dedicated volunteers, 8 of
whom are trustees and 3 who act in an advisory role. To ensure the
smooth running of the scheme there are three sub committees which meet
throughout the year to look specifically at Finance & Fundraising,
Personnel and Profile & Fund Raising. See Who's
Who for management committee
roles and photos.
During the year April 2015 to March 2016 we had 55
trained volunteers, who were able to support 54 families, including
Every year Home-Start helps thousands of families in hundreds of local
communities across the UK. In total there are over 290 other schemes.
However, each Home-Start scheme is independent and is responsible for
their own management and fund raising. Home-Start UK ensures that the
same high quality of service is offered at every Home-Start scheme.
They provide training for all staff across schemes, assess Home-Start
work against agreed quality standards, offer information through a UK
wide Intranet and advise trustees and staff in areas of governance.
