Who we are

Hope at Home is a growing and ambitious charity established in January 2018 (Charity no 1176802) which works to provide safe homes for survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking in the UK.


Our vision is to provide safe homes for survivors of modern slavery. We do this by delivering a hosting scheme across the UK and by developing other innovative accommodation options for survivors.


The role

​This is an exciting role for individuals who want to shape the future development of the organisation to continue providing safe homes for survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking.

We are particularly looking for motivated, committed people with experience of:

  • Lived experience of modern slavery or human trafficking, homelessness or the asylum & immigration system.
  • Working knowledge of immigration / housing law.
  • Working knowledge of marketing
  • Working knowledge of safeguarding law and practice.

Hope at Home usually has four full board meetings a year which take place in person on a Saturday and require a whole day. Ahead of the meetings trustees will be expected to prepare and to complete any tasks or actions assigned. Trustees also sit on sub-committees that help to guide the development, management, finance and safety of Hope at Home, all of which meet online.

Reasonable travel expenses/costs will be covered for attending Hope at Home board-related meetings and for any agreed development training.

How to apply:

Please download our Trustee Information Pack and send your CV and cover letter outlining your motivation for applying and the strengths, key-skills, experience and knowledge you can bring to the Board.

* At Home at Home we embrace diversity. We recognise that charity trusteeship is predominantly white and are committed to making change. Our work on this is at all levels and we are passionate that our trustee board should be truly representative of the people it serves. We’re therefore encouraging applicants from all backgrounds and (especially those) from Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups. Given the nature of our work, we are keen to add more voices with lived experience of modern slavery, homelessness or the UK asylum systems to the Board too – helping us to evolve our work with all these experiences in mind. We do not expect Board members with lived experience to talk about their stories but rather to use their experiences to inform decision making.
