In L’Arche we believe that people with learning disabilities have much to teach us and contribute to the world. During the last fifty years, we have learnt that one of the best ways to enable this is by creating Communities with a culture of shared lives between people with and without learning disabilities, from which we can work together to build a more human society.
The Digital Fundraising and Communications Officer will sit in the Fundraising and Communications team in our Manchester office. With our Fundraising and Communication Leads you will be responsible for developing our digital strategy and our online communications with our supporters.
