Home-Start in Suffolk offers a unique service. We recruit and train volunteers, to visit families at home, provide telephone support or support our regular group activities, offering them informal, friendly and confidential support. The families we help have at least one child under 12.

To help give children the best possible start in life, Home-Start supports parents as they grow in confidence, strengthen their relationship with their children and widen their links with the local community.

3 years ago, we were known as the "Best kept secret in Suffolk." But with a lot of hard work, a network of brilliant contacts and some amazing stories from families and volunteers we have successfully raised the profile of the organisation to what we are today.Securing regular press coverage in printed press, radio and television as well substantially growing our social media audiences across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn has ensured that we are an important service to families across the county and the work we do makes a huge difference to them and to our volunteers!

We have a responsibility to give our supported families a voice, highlighting the challenges they are facing and telling their stories in the right way, showing compassion and empathy. We are responsible for celebrating the amazing work of our volunteers and the incredible work they do to support families! And we have to continue to promote the charity and engage with local businesses, securing sponsorships and hosting fundraising events and activities that will ensure the continued growth in fundraising revenue.

The Fundraising and Marketing team have been instrumental in building relationships with local businesses and the community and hosting key events such as our annual Moonlight Ball, our online art auction and Character Creations competition for Suffolk Primary School age children, which has resulted in a staggering 400% increase in fundraising revenue since 2019!

But we are not done yet!

To this successful growth we are looking to expand our Fundraising and Marketing team - recruiting a Fundraising and Marketing Coordinator! We are looking for a creative, dynamic and self-motivated new team member who is passionate about supporting families in Suffolk.

Reporting to the Fundraising and Marketing Manager and working alongside our existing Income Generator and Grants officer, you will demonstrate your track record in Fundraising and Marketing, be a strong, enthusiastic, positive team player, committed to the aims and values of our organisation and above all, be a compassionate storyteller with the drive to succeed and build strong networking relationships with the community, press and local businesses.
