Around 40% of Beat’s income currently comes from Trusts, Foundations and Statutory sources. We have a well-established Trusts & Statutory function and have succeeded in gaining the support of many well-known funders, such as the National Lottery, Children in Need and Garfield Weston Foundation. This year, we are forecasting to raise just under £2.6m from Trusts & Statutory, so this role is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious candidate to play a really crucial role in securing the income which will enable us to help more people than ever before.

Maximising income for Beat’s work from trust and statutory sources, by the creation of high-quality applications and reports to funders and by providing excellent account management and cross-team collaboration.
Proactively identifying trust and statutory funding sources, researching them for suitability.
Writing high quality applications to trusts and statutory funders.
Providing high quality account management through collecting information for, and writing, reports - maximising income generation and relationship longevity.
