Community Fundraising Volunteer
This is an ideal opportunity for someone wishing to gain valuable fundraising experience, in a dynamic national charity. This role is ideal for someone who enjoys talking to people, looking to commit to a fundraising role in your community and are interested in fundraising for a mental health charity.
The Community Fundraising team is based in London and Cardiff, and sits within the Public Fundraising department of Mind. There are 18 people in the team in total, and the Cardiff team consists of one Senior Fundraising Officer and one Community Fundraising Coordinator all of whom are available to ensure your volunteering opportunity is a mutually valued and pleasant one. The department raises approximately £5.9 million gross income per year for Mind’s work.
We are looking for an enthusiastic volunteer to join our friendly fundraising team and help us raise vital funds for us, by helping set up and coordinate a Counter Collection Box Scheme in Cardiff and across Wales. You will help strengthen Mind’s community fundraising profile across Wales and also add value to your local community.
We can help you to develop your existing skills, gain new ones and give you a valuable insight into our work.
The role is flexible and we are looking for someone who can volunteer from our Cardiff Office, around 1-2 days a week for a minimum of 3-6 months. This post is an unpaid volunteering role; we can offer reimbursement of travel up to £15 per day and lunch expenses up to £5 per day.
We welcome interest from those individuals who have direct or indirect experience of a mental health problem, who will gain support and understanding, with the opportunity to build confidence, skills and experience from Mind.
Mind aims to ensure that the needs and interest of mental health services users, men, women, Black and Minority Ethnic communities, disabled people, lesbians, gay men and bisexuals and people of all ages are reflected in all its activities. The Volunteer is expected to contribute to this aim.
