The Sunshine Charity

The Loneliness and Social Isolation Charity

The Sunshine Charity is a start-up charity which is hoping to make a difference to the lives of those suffering from loneliness and social isolation. Prior to Covid19, 1 in 20 people in the UK were suffering and this number has since risen dramatically in 2021.

We want to be the 'Sunshine' in people’s lives and give them a reason to want to carry on, to bring them out of the darkness that they feel trapped inside.

The Sunshine Charity was born out of love, and a passion to make change based on the experiences of the Founder's sister, who has been living with Cerebral Palsy all of her life; the loneliness and social isolation that both the physical and mental disability has caused her. No friends, inability to do things for herself and the lack of experience within the health and social care system to understand her needs and to make her feel human, has led to her feeling suicidal and wishing to end her life.

We need your help! We cannot do this alone, there are people currently waiting for support and to feel that human connection and warmth.

We can bring 'Sunshine' into people’s lives by being there for all lonely people within our community!

We aim to be that human touch, the connection that brings people together, so they need no longer feel alone, in darkness, or feeling their life has no meaning.

We aim to inspire, build confidence, connect people together, build social and life skills, so that life has meaning again, and 'Sunshine' may flood the lives of all those who need our services.

We’re recruiting an experienced marketing/communications Volunteer for the position of Communications Manager (Volunteer) at the Sunshine Charity, where you will lead on our marketing and communications efforts in being our Chief Storyteller and in helping us in creating a real buzz, energy and excitement about the Sunshine Charity, raising our profile and enabling us to reach out to more people, including management of our social media accounts, writing articles and press releases, managing our website and our external communications to ensure our message, style and tone is clear, catchy and we are able to get our message across to the needed audiences we are targeting.

This role is multifaceted and if you have a few hours a week to help make a difference and help bring ‘sunshine’ into people’s lives then get in touch as we would love to hear from you.


Why not volunteer with us and help us transform the lives of vulnerable people suffering in silence and darkness and let us break the chains of social isolation and loneliness, bring in the Sunshine and help make a difference in the lives of those in need.
