We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.
Save the Children are looking to engage as many people as possible to get them donating, fundraising and raising awareness. You can help this process through your local networks. This is a terrific role for you to get stuck into and all you’ll need is a computer and a phone.
By researching local businesses, schools and organisations, you’ll also look for potential opportunities and different ways to promote local fundraising activities happening in your community. So, you’ll need to feel confident speaking to different people over the phone, using the internet to carry out research and creating a spreadsheet or report for your Community Fundraising Manager. And once you've done that, you could get involved in the organisation and delivery of different events and initiatives. Each local community is different and with your help we can make the most of the interests and opportunities your local one provides.
We run world-class programmes to save children's lives and challenge world leaders to keep to their promises to give children a brighter future. Our network of volunteer led charity shop allows us to raise much needed money and awareness.
