Who we are

In partnership with other agencies, we provide free support and advice services throughout the year to help people who are homeless as well as to help people avoid homelessness, stay housed and to re-build their lives.
Current trustee vacancies
We are looking for enthusiastic, dedicated and skilled people to join our board of trustees to help us tackle homelessness in our community and guide the development of the charity.
We need people with a wide range of professional skills and applicants should have a strong belief in, and attraction to, our cause.
Trustees take overall responsibility for the strategic direction of the charity and its ability to fulfil its mission to reduce homelessness, and the harms of homelessness.
We are seeking trustees that have experience in the following areas:
- Information technology
- Fundraising and marketing
- Statutory sector experience
If you have experience in any other area we would still like to hear from you.
Role type: Trustee positions are voluntary with reasonable expenses paid.
Location: Our office is in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. In-person board meetings will usually be in High Wycombe but may also take place locally or online if needed.
Time commitment: Minimum of three hours a month plus any other commitments the role holder takes on. The board meets approximately 11 times a year. Individual trustees may be asked to join a subcommittee and/or take on additional responsibilities.
Term of office: Terms are for three years and any eligible trustee can be reappointed.
Because of the nature and context of the role, there is a requirement that the role-holder must be a Christian.
Closing date: 29th October 2021.
