Working for Theodora means you will be helping children living with illness, disability and serious health challenges feel better – using the proven power of giggling. You will play a pivotal role, developing and maintaining new and existing fundraising relationships, but most importantly you will be responsible for securing grants of high value, maintaining an up-to-date pipeline, identifying and submitting applications, and working with the Fundraising Manager to grow income from Trusts.
Theodora Children’s Charity has helped over half a million children and their families in the UK in the past 26 years by improving children’s experience of being in hospital and specialist care centres. We do this through visits from highly skilled paid performers, called Giggle Doctors and we work closely with NHS partners, play specialists and clinical teams. We also form part of an international family with its origins in Switzerland and are proud to have helped 3 million children internationally.
Our Giggle Doctors increase opportunities for play, reduce distress and anxiety and give children back an element of control. They achieve this through improvised play which puts the child at the centre of the interaction and through the use of music, magic, storytelling, comedy and mime. It is important that the play is always child led.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
