Portsmouth Fundraising Group Coordinator

Here at Guide Dogs, our team of volunteers is growing, but we’re always in need of new members. We encourage people from all walks of life to join our community of caring and passionate volunteers. When we say volunteering for Guide Dogs is life changing, we’re not just talking about the people we’ll support. You’ll gain new skills; build confidence you never knew you had and have amazing experiences that you genuinely couldn’t find anywhere else.  

There are around 2 million people living with sight loss in the UK. Guide Dogs, a UK-wide charity, supports people with a visual impairment to maintain their independence and live the life they choose. There are lots of different services on offer, ranging from volunteer-led services such as sighted guiding through to support for children and young people, access to technology, and the iconic guide dog service. It costs around £55,000 to train and support a guide dog partnership throughout the dog and owner’s life.

Our Fundraising volunteers play a significant part in enabling us to continue to provide these services. As a Fundraising Group Coordinator you will be the key contact for fundraising in your local community, coordinating a group of Fundraising Volunteers to raise money from a variety of activities such as collections, social events and tea parties.

The role would involve speaking with local businesses about fundraising opportunities for example, at local shopping centres, supermarkets, local events; organise fundraising activities for example quiz nights, bowling nights, sponsored walks, murder mysteries or anything else you can think of. You would build good working relationships with other volunteers in your group and make sure fundraising policies and procedures are followed and records are maintained.
