Job description

We can bring sunshine into people’s lives by being at the side of all lonely people in our community!!!

One in twenty people in the UK report feeling lonely, and the number is rising.

It can affect people of any age, with the vulnerable being most at risk - including people living with long-term illness or disability. It’s time to change this.

We are the Sunshine Charity, a new start up charity aiming to fight the battle against loneliness and social isolation. We want to be the sunshine in the lives of those who need it, no matter who they are or where they are going.

Do have experience in Community Engagement and live in London?

Do you want to be part of something amazing, a new start-up charity where you will get to help shape, develop and grow its future?

We are looking for a dedicated and committed volunteer to join us at the Sunshine Charity to help our new start-up charity.

Our Story:

Our Founder, saw the devastating impact of loneliness in his social and community work, including a shocking increase in suicides. And he also saw first-hand how difficult it is to get support for those feeling lonely - including his own disabled sister.

Work started on Sunshine Charity in late 2019 - ready to bring socialising, support and, dare we say it, fun so desperately needed in people’s lives.

Our Work:

We aim to inspire, build confidence and skills, and give people the tools to manage their mental health and wellbeing.

  • Online and Telephone based befriending support will give those unable to leave their homes some human connection, with someone to talk to and listen to them, while getting access to the support they need.
  • Zoom based activities such as Mindfulness, Boost your Confidence, Mental Health Skills, Exercise and Fitness and much more.
  • Drop-In Sessions, with an opportunity to sit down and have a chat with one of our Sunshine Charity team in a relaxed and comfortable space, plus optional participation in our valuable social based activities or our life and social skills workshops.
  • Social and Support Groups will be a new opportunity for service users to engage each other in a safe social setting. And our support can continue online, sharing opportunities to socialise and practical support for dealing with the effects of loneliness.
  • Other activities that promote health and wellbeing for those suffering from loneliness and social isolation.

The Role:

We are seeking an experienced volunteer who has experience in building professional long-lasting partnerships and also in community engagement and participation to promote the charity and bring in service users to our new services, raise awareness of the Sunshine Charity and build partnerships and referral pathways for the position of Community Engagement Manager.

As the Community Engagement Manager, you will search out and create partnerships with businesses and other charities and organisations, reach out to the communities we work and promote Sunshine Charity, bringing in service users, to access the services they need, volunteers, to help us run our activities and services and sponsors and supporters, to help us fund the work we do.

This role is multifaceted and requires approx. 6 to 8 hours per week, offering great flexibility to fit around your time, including daytime, evenings, and weekends.

You MUST have excellent communications skills, good grasp of the English language, a computer with access to the internet and a good working camera for Zoom, experience of building partnerships and engaging the community. We are also looking for someone who has a positive vibe, bubbly, and interactive with people with excellent communication skills, empathy, and a caring nature, who can provide active listening skills with good role model and motivational attitude. A current DBS Check is desirable but not essential.

Getting Involved:

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