What do we do and where do we do it?

We are an early-years support charity, operating across the Bracknell Forest area. We recruit and train volunteers from across Bracknell Forest and surrounding areas, carefully matching the volunteer with a family in need of support. Volunteers are from all walks of life, parents or grandparents, all providing emotional and practical help to local families. Support is confidential, flexible and totally-responsive to the family's needs.

Why are we looking for a new Trustee?

Although we operate in and around Bracknell Forest, trustees can come from any area.

We want to recruit a Fundraising-strategy trustee who will develop our focus, assisting or advising with fundraising and bid writing to help us improve our sustainability. This will include building on and growing our corporate sponsorship success. Information about our fundraising.

About the existing Board

There are eight other voluntary Trustees, and we are actively recruiting for this role to complement existing skills of the Board, develop, grow and implement our fundraising.
