Our charitable aim is ‘the advancement to health’. Our office is based in Cambuslang, though we have staff and volunteers that represent us all over Scotland providing Peer Support.
We have an exciting opportunity that has opened for an experienced part- time fundraiser to come and join our team. The role will involve all aspects of fundraising including grant applications, community and events fundraising, and liaising with our corporate supporters.
