Help take the UK's leading music and dementia charity to the next level

Playlist for Life, the UK's leading music and dementia charity, is seeking an experienced fundraiser to help us maintain and grow our funding, allowing us to continue in our mission of improving the lives of people living with dementia.

Playlist for Life is the personal music and dementia charity founded in 2013 by writer and broadcaster Sally Magnusson. We have ambitious plans for the next two years and thanks are recruiting for this new post to help support and roll out our large-scale expansion programme. By 2022 we want to establish a vibrant UK network of Help Points, volunteers, and trained healthcare and social care professionals, all creating and using playlists in their communities to help manage dementia systems, alleviate distress and reconnect relationships.

We have seen rapid growth over the past four years, growth that has been made possible in large part to the generosity of a range of charitable Trusts and Foundations. The successful candidate will help us build on this success by growing our existing pipeline of funding and seeking new funding opportunities.

You will be responsible for generating funding for Playlist for Life by researching and identifying suitable Trusts, Foundations, and other grant-making bodies, writing timely, factual, and compelling funding applications, and co-ordinating the writing of reports for funders.
