KMHCF is a small charity which acts as the collective voice to represent the views and concerns of unpaid Mental Health Carers in the Royal Borough of Kingston. We are recognised in this campaigning role by statutory services who engage us as active members of relevant committees and strategy groups, and we also partner with other third-sector organisations.
We are the only charity in Kingston dedicated to assist those who provide unpaid care for someone experiencing Mental Health difficulties. We assist individual Carers with advice, guidance and peer support.
We charge no membership fees, nor do we receive any statutory funding, so our ongoing work is reliant upon grant funding.
We are keen to further develop our service and we invite a volunteer with financial experience to help us achieve this. Whilst KMHCF is fully-funded for its present activities, we will look to the successful applicant to guide us towards funding opportunities for future expansion, and to take the lead on the application processes.
You would need to be able to produce bids which would, in a competitive arena, entice Grant Funders to want to support our service.
It would be good if you have some awareness of Mental Health yourself, but this is not essential. Most of all, you should have the enthusiasm to serve Carers who can often feel isolated and bewildered.
The Fundraiser would attend our Management Committee which meets about every two months on a mid-week evening. Otherwise, the role is home-based.
If you have the drive to make a real difference for Carers, please contact us for an informal discussion as a first step towards joining us.
