Fundraising Research and Project Assistant 

Changes Bristol does not receive any statutory funding so relies on voluntary donations from individuals, corporate partnerships and funding from Trusts and Foundations. 

The Fundraising Research & Project Assistant Volunteer will provide valuable support to our small charity and especially support our Development and Events Executive to raise vital funds needed to run our mental health service across Bristol. 

This volunteer role will consist of researching potential funding opportunities, developing a corporate partnership pipeline for support and developing new and existing fundraising events. 

It’s a fun and varied role where you can get involved in running fundraising events and building up support from local businesses with the aim of securing Charity of the Year partnerships, knowing that you are helping a local peer led charity to progress and offer more support to those in mental distress.

What are we looking for?

This role is perfect for someone who already has some experience in fundraising or events and is keen to gain more experience in the charity sector, or someone looking for a career change or simply to get stuck in to some worthwhile grassroots projects.
