About this role

Fundraising Groups play a vital role in helping us reach our goal of overturning the damaging decline in children’s well-being. By raising awareness of the issues facing young people and organising Fundraising and awareness events they bring the community together while increase the charities profile in the local area.

Fundraising Groups plan their own activities and share responsibilities so, alongside leading the group, activities for this role could include; Event Management, Marketing, Finance (counting and banking money).

This is a great opportunity for an organised, friendly and outgoing person to gain experience of leadership and event management whilst making a real difference to the lives of young people.

All of our Volunteer Fundraising Groups are supported by a Local Relationship Manager, who is on hand to provide information and guidance.


We hope you can join us!
