We are a registered charity and not for profit Social Enterprise supporting people in need in Epping Forest District and surrounding areas. We sell furniture, white goods and household items to the general public at affordable prices, to those on income based benefits at a discount and in some instances we provide for free. We work with a wide variety of agencies and seek to help those who are struggling to help themselves.
As a Social Enterprise, 100% of our funds are used to help those in need. There are no shareholders or anyone else profiting from our operation. We are always very grateful for any donations and grants as it helps us help more people. In addition, applying for grants is also a funding stream which we are looking to grow as it will be instrumental in financing our exciting plans for growth.
We are looking for a talented grant application writer to research organisations to which our charity can apply for funding and, supported by the Epping Forest ReUse team, to draft and submit grant applications.
Ideally the volunteer would have some knowledge of the workings of a voluntary organisation and experience in bid writing. The ability to research thoroughly, to assess criteria and to produce winning applications are all key attributes.
The role can be home-based or working with the office team if preferred .
Location: The project will be based in the industrial estate in Bower Hill. Close to Epping Tube Station and bus links
