Lead Fundraising and Communications Volunteer

BWC is at the forefront of a movement actively supporting women and girls with multiple vulnerabilities across Sussex, working collaboratively with both voluntary and statutory partners to achieve positive outcomes.

BWC places clients at the heart of its services, with a holistic and trauma informed approach based on co-production principles. We are driven to achieve positive and fulfilling futures for women we work with, many of whom have multiple, complex needs. BWC’s specialist advice, support, advocacy and counselling services support women who have experience of homelessness, the criminal justice system, mental health needs, problematic use of substances, poverty and abuse.

BWC is part of a wider network of women’s centres and gender responsive providers contributing to ongoing research on good practice and innovation in services for vulnerable women. We proactively work to identify and address the underlying factors for women presenting with multiple, complex needs and position our services to achieve the very best for women we support.

Lead Fundraising and Communications Volunteer: (4hrs per week, including evenings and weekends)

We’re looking for an enthusiastic, creative and organised woman to lead our group of  Fundraising and Communications Volunteers.

The Fundraising and Communications Lead will play an important part in inspiring and motivating the group of volunteers in their mission to raise vital funds which help to support women in Sussex. You will work alongside the Fundraising and Events Manager and other volunteers to organise and deliver at least three fundraising events per year, including our flagship event in March to celebrate International Women’s Day.

The role is flexible to suit your commitments, although we ask for a minimum time commitment of 4hrs per week for a period of one year, including regular attendance at monthly meetings (all held on weekday evenings). In the case of larger, more complex events (such as International Women’s Day) additional meetings will be scheduled as necessary to ensure effective planning and implementation.
