We are With You (formerly Addaction) is a charity providing free, confidential support to people experiencing issues with drugs, alcohol or mental health.
We work with people on their own goals, whether thats staying safe and healthy, making small changes or stopping an unwanted habit altogether. This means giving people support in a way thats right for them, either face to face, in their local service, community, or online.
To date the charity has derived almost all its income from commissioning bodies such as local authorities and NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups. The pattern of provision and the funding priorities are ever changing and the pressure to deliver more for less is ever increasing. This is why we need you to join a small team to diversify income.
This is certainly a role to make your own as you will be building new relationships, re-establishing lapsed relationships, prospect researching, building compelling cases for support, in addition to monitoring income and expenditure budgets.
Your remit will be to develop the trust and foundations strategy in collaboration with the Head of Fundraising and specifically, to identify prospective trusts and foundations whose strategic objectives match those of the charity, and to develop, manage and lead all trust and foundations applications, ensuring that targets are met.
The successful candidate is likely to be able to demonstrable a track record of researching and securing income from trusts and/or foundations, relationship building and networking with external and internal stakeholders and funders.
