Job description

An opportunity to work at the heart of our project to attract the necessary funds so that we can reach out to more young people who have lost a loved one and will benefit from our therapeutic game. 

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to join a small and dedicated team to secure the funding we need to really develop and market our free, award winning app and to broaden our impact.

We would love to hear from you if:-

  • You have worked at a strategic level and would be confident to help guide our fundraising project 
  • Have experience of bid writing, particularly for a charity
  • you would feel confident identifying potential funders

We are very keen to secure funding in the short term to cover projects, and would be very interested in hearing from you if you have the above skills and would be available 2 to 3 days a week for approximately the next 8 weeks.

Role Overview

The Grant Writer Volunteer will be responsible for developing and writing grant proposals to trusts, foundations and other grant-making organisations ensuring that our mission and objectives are communicated well.

On a day to day basis, you will be:-

  • Developing and writing grant proposals 
  • Helping to Assemble and submit grant requests
  • Tracking our processes including deadline dates and required materials for each proposal

We would love to hear from you  if you have experience of writing and delivering successful grants and tenders, ideally for charities. If you have had experience of fundraising for the mental health sector, we would be especially interested in hearing from you.

This role will involve using, understanding and analysing data so you will need to show that you have this experience.  You will also need to understand data protection rules.

Fundraising is currently at the heart of our project. We have been fortunate so far in getting the funds to set up and get started but we need so much more to really reach vulnerable young people through different channels. Volunteering with Apart of Me, you will find yourself connected with a small, friendly and dedicated team of exceptional people who all believe passionately in our product. Your ideas and fresh approach could make all the difference!
