Description

We are Guide Dogs and we’re here to help people with sight loss live the life they choose. Our ambition is a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support they need to live their lives to the full.

We don’t just provide life-changing guide dogs, we also provide advice, skills, emotional and practical support for people and families living with sight loss to help them live actively, independently and well.

The role of the group coordinator is to be the key contact for the volunteers in their fundraising group and to coordinate them to plan fundraising events and activities.

You’ll also play a key role in building relationships with local businesses and groups, like schools, Brownies, Guides and Scouts groups and community groups, to encourage them to host their own events in support of Guide Dogs and make them aware of things like our Name a Puppy scheme.

This role would be great if you have good communication and organisation skills, enjoy meeting new people and getting out and about in your local area.

• Organising and attending fundraising activities and events
• Building relationships with local networks, socials groups, schools and businesses to encourage them to host their own event in support of Guide Dogs
