What will you be doing?

We are looking for an experienced Trusts and Grants Fundraiser to join our small, busy and very friendly Fundraising team and charity.

Working with other fundraising volunteers, you will play an integral role in helping secure vital income to help continue TAP’s family services.

You’ll have an understanding of researching, preparing and submitting high-quality compelling funding applications and will be confident in developing strong relationships with current and potential grants funders.

This is an exciting, varied and vital opportunity, and your enthusiasm and ability to plan effectively and positively contribute will be key.

Our successful fundraisers will have:

• Experience in writing compelling and successful funding applications to Charitable Trusts, Statutory funds and other grant making organisations

• Ability to build the case for support for project related funding opportunities

• Keen research skills seeking out funding sources, keeping up to date with new and emerging funding opportunities, and analysing their suitability

• Strong relationship management skills

• Keen eye for detail

What are we looking for?

You will be passionate about the changes we are trying to make in the lives of autistic children. You will have experience of generating interest in what we are doing and converting that into donations.

You will be constantly looking for new ways to promote the charity and expand its reach and fundraising potential. You will possess the confidence, positivity and determination to achieve your goals.

What difference will you make?

The Transforming Autism Project is a growing charity focusing on very early intervention for children with autism. Our goal is to truly transform lives through our life-changing Mifne Treatment Centre (details here) and our unique online Hub of comprehensive guidance, support, education and community for parents of autistic children. We also challenge conventional perceptions of autism and offer our own radical and empowering perspective. This can be seen in our TED talk, which has now been viewed by well over 85,000 people. 

We are looking to make fast progress to make our projects viable and help as many families as soon as we can. To that end, we are looking to create a team of capable and dedicated volunteers to ensure our success.

What's in it for the volunteer?

The ability to make a real impact to the lives of families in our family service programs
