This is an exciting fundraising role. The project work we need to fund covers skills development, outdoor children’s play, bike hub, café and produce garden. Most of that funding will come from applications to trusts or government. We do not undertake direct fundraising.
Role will include liaising with staff, trustees, and members to determine what funding is required to carry out our strategy. Researching grant opportunities, writing applications,maintaining funding database.
