Home Start is seeking a grant towards the salary of an administrator. The administrator deals with the day to day running of the organisation, ie making appointments for visits, co-ordinating the volunteers and keeping the financial records, as well as liasing with the trustees. This post frees up the co-ordinator of the organisation to concentrate on service delivery and meeting the needs of the families the organisation is working with. Longer term, the service users benefit, as there is more dedicated staff time to meet their needs, which in turn improves the quality of their lives.
