The Loneliness and Wellbeing Charity
We are the Sunshine Charity, a newly registered charity providing services and support to those living with loneliness and social isolation. Our mission is to bring the 'Sunshine' into people’s lives, through activities, programmes, events and services that aim to bring people together and create a connection both online and through face to face interventions.
The Sunshine Charity was born out of love, and a passion to make change based on the lived 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, the lack of friendship and the inability to do things for herself, as well as the lack of compassion and care within the health and social care system to understand her needs and to take action or to even make her feel like a human, has led to her feeling in total darkness, suicidal and wishing to end her life.
We have some real exciting times ahead as our very small but ambitious charity expands and grows. We need committed and dedicated volunteers to come on our journey with us and help us bring sunshine into people’s lives, being by the side of all those who need our support and care.
By joining us as a volunteer at the Sunshine Charity, you could help us to bring some 'Sunshine' into people’s lives.
We need a volunteer with experience in operations or service management, or within frontline service delivery especially in befriending, social work, health and wellbeing or other related area, who can lead on the set up and management of our frontline services.
This includes creating a service plan, leading on our safeguarding, assisting in the recruitment and selection of volunteers, networking and building professional relationships and partnerships with other organisations, writing funding applications, supporting day to day management at the Sunshine Charity and leading from the front when it comes to service delivery.
This includes deputising for the CEO as and when required and acting as a member of our charity's management team and helping our very small but ambitious charity make a huge difference in the lives of people who need us most.
Get in touch and tell us how you can help make this happen and be part of something amazing, where we can make real change and impact in the lives of those living with loneliness and social isolation.
Why not volunteer and help us create an amazing community of passionate, dedicated and committed people to help end loneliness and give people some compassion and love back. Help us make a difference and change a life.
