A Way Out is a charity with a difference. We are a successful outreach and prevention charity established in 2002 serving the Tees Valley area. Our approach is asset based and trauma informed aiming to engage, empower and equip women, families and young people who may be experiencing multiple disadvantages, enabling lasting change and providing support at times of crisis.
With support from ‘Awards for All’ we are recruiting to the post of Fundraising Co-ordinator, seeking an experienced and dynamic person to raise the profile of A Way Out; leading the development and delivery of a cost-effective community fundraising strategy; and contribute to raising awareness, understanding, and challenging negative stereotypes, of those experiencing abuse, harm and exploitation to ensure their voice is heard and their needs met.
We are seeking to appoint an innovative individual with the ability to think creatively outside of traditional community fundraising structures and with skills to develop and grow A Way Out’s community support. The The Fundraising Co-ordinator will engage with community groups, trusts, charities, local businesses, other partners (including local authorities) and the general public through existing networks and our own and partner websites, and social media accounts to then develop and deliver campaigns and events, growing corporate support and encouraging individual givers and donors.
The role will be responsible for creating and managing a new team of fundraising volunteers to assist with awareness raising (including organising and/or attending events) and fundraising (through campaigns, trust applications, donations and events) to further raise awareness and understanding and generate income to support our services.
The role will maximise the generation of on-line and off-line community funding and support for A WAY OUT and be responsible for ensuring our fundraising complies with all legal requirements and follows recognised best practice.
