Are you passionate about making a difference to people’s lives? In the UK 1 in 20 people has ADHD – yet only a fifth of those are diagnosed. ADHD is the most misunderstood of the neurodiversities.

ADHD UK is a newly founded small, high-growth, mental health charity with big ambitions. We’re looking for someone to help us evolve and change the futures for people with ADHD. We work under our 5 pillars:-
- Information: We use the internet to enable us to deliver nationwide reaching millions of people at a fraction of the historical cost. We’ve put a lot of effort into our web site and in 2022 we want to develop it further into the most comprehensive resource on ADHD in the UK. So we’re constantly researching services for ADHD and creating new pages of helpful information as well as reaching people with Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
- Support: We’re starting 2022 with 8x the number of national online support events that we had a year ago. We also use Facebook and WhatsApp to provide 24x7 national support groups, our Facebook groups also grew around 8x last year. Knowing that you are not alone is an enormous comfort to our customers so we will be expanding this further in 2022.
- Research: With a strong customer base we are able to carry out our own research – current programmes include waiting times for ADHD assessments and lived experience of support services for ADHD at work plus benefits for students and unemployed. In 2022 we plan to start funding third party research including researching the effects of late diagnosis on ADHD people’s lives.
- Advocacy: We work with employers to help them develop neurodiversity-friendly workplaces, both through our Employer Pack and through training and presentations to organisations. In 2022 we plan to extend the Employer Pack and offer further support and training services for employers and employees, some of which are revenue generators.
- Awareness: Use of our website grew tenfold last year and we also work with the press, e.g. we recently launched a press panel of people with lived experience of ADHD, resulting in coverage on SKY News in January 2022. PR is an area we will be growing this year. We are also planning campaigns to drive changes from the top of government for pupils and students.

The Tudor Trust is an independent grant-making charitable trust funding a wide variety of organisations that work with people at the margins of society. We are a relational grant maker and tend to fund smaller, under-resourced organisations that offer direct services and address marginalisation as our applicants choose to define it. We have used an open grants application process (rather than specific funding programmes) for many years and encourage groups to apply for what they really want.
The new postholder will be coming into the Trust at an exciting moment in our development. For the year from April 2022 the whole Tudor team is setting aside time to re-think how the Trust operates in the future. One of the main drivers for this is the learning we have done around racial justice and how we embed this, both internally and through our grant making. We’ll also be spending time on practical work such as revisiting who we fund and how we support them.
About the role
As well as contributing to this ‘visioning’ work, the new post holder will take on a varied portfolio of active grants from a Grants Manager who is retiring, and will be involved in the assessment and development of new funding applications. To work in a relational way with applicants and grant holders, you will need to have a high level of emotional intelligence, good listening skills and the ability to provide useful and appropriate support to smaller voluntary organisations.
The role requires excellent communication skills, the ability to think and plan strategically, and the capacity to manage a diverse and demanding workload. Previous grant-making experience could be useful, but it is not essential, as we also want to hear from applicants who have first-hand knowledge of the issues facing smaller voluntary organisations, including their financial management, organisational structures and governance.
Last year we committed £21m in new grants, of which 24% went to organisations with a focus on Black and Ethnic Minority communities. In order to have a team that reflects our grant holders’ diversity, and as part of our journey towards racial justice, we are seeking to increase the number of people from racialised (Black and Minority Ethnic) backgrounds in our Grants Team. We are, therefore, encouraging people from racialised backgrounds, particularly Black people (who are currently under-represented on the team) to apply for this role.
Download the Candidate information pack. You'll also need the Application form and Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form. Instructions and contact details are in the pack.
Help us spend all our resources over ten years, and do as much as we can in our two focus areas.
The first is tax & corruption, where we are the UK’s most engaged funder. We focus here on strengthening integrity in the UK’s international financial systems. The second is strengthening high potential non-profits with an international dimension. There are exciting prospects for both.
- You will manage grants & help non-profit leaders strengthen their organisations.
- A key member of our small, friendly staff team.
- Flexible, part time role.
- Deadline: 28th Jan 2022.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.

We have done more to influence laws and policies to help protect children than anyone else. We get things done. And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.
This is a great opportunity to join the UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) as Grants Manager. You will work with a small central grants management team which ensures that funds raised by UNICEF UK are accurately and efficiently transferred to the appropriate UNICEF global programmes.
As Grants Manager, one of your main areas of focus will be to specifically provide grants management support to UNICEF UK’s Philanthropy Team which raises income from major philanthropists and high net worth individuals based in the UK.
To succeed, you will have experience of financial and grant management systems, including the ability to manage complicated data sets and budgets. You will also have experience of managing complex grants, working with a wide variety of internal stakeholders.

Location: Coram’s Fields, Kings Cross
Hours: Full-time, 35hrs per week, some home working may be considered however, the majority of the role will be based on site.
Since its inception in 1936, Coram’s Fields has existed for one reason only, to provide a space dedicated to the children of London, where they can roam freely and safely in an environment that remains unique to this day.
85 years on, our work remains rooted in its founding principles however, over the eight decades since the organisation was established, the needs of the community for which we serve have changed considerably. As a result, our services have needed to evolve to tackle the many complex issues facing children and young people growing up, in what is a densely populated area of London, where 48% live in poverty and over 60% are on the children’s social care register.
Today, alongside the provision of a seven acre park, playground and sports facilities, we deliver a wealth of services that include; an under 5’s drop in, a thirty five place nursery, after school clubs, holiday schemes, a free – five day a week sports programme and youth programme delivered from our state of the art youth centre.
COVID-19 has had a profound impact on the charity’s finances and we are still in the process of recovering from the pandemic. Government grants, our most successful public fundraising campaign to date and generous support from trusts, foundations and grant giving bodies have provided a strong foundation for our recovery. More importantly, they have ensured that we have been able to continue to provide vital support to the hundreds of children that we work with every single week.
As we emerge from the COVID crisis, our main fundraising focus will be on increasing support through our new corporate programme, Connecting Futures, our major donor programme and through the growth of individual and regular giving, whilst maintaining and extending support from trusts and foundations.This is a challenging but hugely rewarding role and one in which you will be able to see the immediate impact of your success.
Our Connecting Futures programme has, since being launched in May 2021, secured support from a host of companies, ranging from London law firms to global media, construction and brand/lifetyle businesses. Alongside this, the success of our public emergency fundraising campaign in 2020, demonstrated the importance of Coram’s Fields to the local community and saw over 1,000 donors collectively raise over £110,000 to protect the charity’s future.
The opportunity to grow and develop our corporate partnerships and harness the support of the local community, to deliver life changing support for young people, and a sustainable income base for the charity, should drive your interest in the role.
As the principle fundraising resource, you will be adept at working under your own initiative however, your role as part of the Charity’s SMT will see you work closely with a committed senior team.
You’ll be joining an organisation with a strong history of delivering outstanding services for its beneficiaries and a staff team committed to changing the lives of young people for the better. A commitment to training, development and organisational wide support will ensure that you will be working in an environment created to enable success in all areas of your work, and one that balances opportunities for autonomy with clear strategic direction.
