Near Neighbours Fundraiser

Near Neighbours Fundraiser

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Fundraiser to join the team at Church Urban Fund supporting the Near Neighbours programme.

The Near Neighbours programme , a partnership between Church Urban Fund and the Archbishops’ Council of the Church of England, brings together those who are near neighbours in communities that are religiously and ethnically diverse, so that they can get to know each other better, build relationships of trust, and collaborate together on initiatives that improve the local community they live in.

The programme which is part funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has just entered its second phase, continuing to work in key communities in England strengthening, developing and deepening networks and action in local communities. Its’ partners develop networks and capacity within local communities and organisations through sustainable initiatives, contributing to the programme with training, expertise and resources.

In addition the programme operates a small grants fund which provides seed capital for local groups and organisations to bring neighbours together, develop relationships of diverse faiths and ethnicities and improve their communities.

The programme requires a successful Fundraiser, experienced in generating income, including bid writing and tendering; knowledge of fundraising from Trusts, Foundations and corporate entities. You will have excellent communication skills and proven ability to network and develop relationships with individuals and organisations across multiple sectors.
