Could you help Extratime make a difference to the lives of children and young people?
Extratime is an award-winning children’s charity working across Brighton & Hove and West Sussex. At Extratime clubs and holiday schemes, children and young people with disabilities, complex medical needs and conditions such as autism, have the specialist support they need to have fun, try new things and make new friends. Families consistently tell us that that Extratime is their life-line. The specialist care we provide broadens horizons for children and young people. For their families, Extratime’s after school clubs and holiday schemes also provides an important break from the pressures of caring for a child with a disability.
About the role
This new post presents a fantastic opportunity for a skilled and experienced Trust Fundraiser to join our friendly team. This is an exciting time to be part of Extratime - you will be joining us at a time when our fundraising strategy is poised for growth.
You will quickly develop an understanding of Extratime, our work and our values. Working alongside the CEO and Community Fundraiser, you will build on the foundation we have established to make an immediate impact on the lives of children with disabilities and their families in Brighton & Hove and West Sussex.
Initially you will use our existing case for support and prospect list to meet our fundraising target for 2018-2019. Beyond this, there’s an opportunity to develop and grow the role to achieve long term funding success as Extratime continues to grow and change to meet the needs of our young service users and their families.
This is a fantastic opportunity to develop your role and make a big difference for children and young people with additional needs and disabilities and their families.
If so, you could be the right person to join our team here at Sussex Oakleaf. We are a dynamic and value-driven charitable organisation supporting vulnerable adults in a wide range of services across Sussex. Our mission is to enable people to survive crisis and recover control in their lives.
Lighthouse Recovery Support is an innovative service for people living with a Personality Disorder in Brighton and Hove. The service is a three-way partnership between Sussex Oakleaf, Sussex Partnership Foundation Trust and Mind in Brighton and Hove. Together, we provide a range of therapeutic opportunities and an extensive community support programme, including key working, group work, peer support, information and advice and learning and development, to help people manage their symptoms and engage actively in everyday life.
You don’t have to be an expert in Personality Disorders to join us, but you do have to be creative, flexible and resilient, able to get great results from working in close partnership with others and able to manage complex, and sometimes challenging, relationships.
The service is open 7 days a week providing daily groups and activities, including a community café, to support our members on their personal recovery journeys.
You’ll be providing leadership and management support to a team of committed staff and may need to work some evenings or weekends to support the service.
You are likely to have a background in mental health, supported housing or community development. An understanding of the issues faced by people with a Personality Disorder diagnosis would be preferable.
If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. Further information, including details on how to apply can be found via our website.
