Our Trustees

Jan Campbell Young
Jan lives near Honiton in East Devon and became a Home-Start trustee in November 2013.  She runs her own businesses delivering executive coaching and leadership development in the public sector and renting out holiday cottages on her farm during the summer.

She qualified as a pharmacist many years ago and spent most of her early working life in the NHS ending up as Deputy Chief Executive in a large London Teaching Hospital.  Jan is married with a grown up daughter and 2 naughty dogs.

Jan has spent 5 years as a primary school governor and believes that children love to learn and that they develop best in a caring supportive environment with lots of positive encouragement.  She is delighted to bring her skills, experience and approach to development to the management of the scheme.


Maggie Carter
Maggie became a Home-Start trustee in December 2013, having spent her working life focussed on trying to improve the lives of children, young people and families especially those who face challenges.

Maggie has been a teacher of children with special needs, an educational psychologist and a leader of services that support children, families and schools, most recently at Plymouth City Council.  She retired in September 2013 and says, "I am pleased to have the opportunity to use my experience to contribute to the work of Home-Start who provide a fantastic service to families and help them feel better about bringing up their children and getting back on track.

"I live near Exeter and am married with two children (one of each!) who are now grown up. I still have strong memories of their early years and of feeling that no-one had helped me know how to do this new job of being a parent. I want to play a part in enabling Home-Start to continue the great work it does with families."

Nikki Trump
Nicki lives in Tiverton with her husband Dan and having moved to Devon last year from Cornwall is enjoying getting to know more and more of our lovely county. She spends as much time as she can out walking, visiting new places and is also a keen swimmer who tries to swim at least 3 times a week.

Nikki is a Training Consultant for a bank and has worked for the same company for the past 11 years.She has been a trustee since the end of 2014 and am really looking forward to meeting more people from this great charity. Her reason for getting inolved is simple, "I wanted to join Home Start as I have heard about the fantastic work you do and wanted to contribute to it in any way that I can."
