Meet the Team

Home Basics is run by paid members of staff and lots of volunteers.  The charity also has a team of dedicated voluntary Directors who are the Trustees.  The Directors meet once a month and also have sub-groups to look at specific needs.

Some of the people you might encounter most often at Home Basics are:

Dennis Fisher - Business Manager

Dennis is based at the Walkerburn depot. Dennis is the person to contact if you have any questions about how the charity is run or have any comments that you want to pass on. Dennis is assisted by Kate & Noel to help organise the van collections and delivery schedules.

Christine Gillespie - Shop Manager

Christine is our Shop Manager in Hawick, where a selection of furniture items are available for sale.

Ian, Kenny and Graeme - Van Drivers

We employ Ian,  Kenny and Graeme as our wonderfully cheerful van drivers who are helped by a number of volunteers throughout the week.

Our Volunteers

Volunteers are incredibly important to Home Basics, with over 30 helping every week. Without our volunteers we couldn't keep going. We have more information about how to volunteer and short descriptions from some of them about being a volunteer on the Volunteers Stories page.
