Do you believe in a world where all belong?
Do you want to make this a reality for people with learning disabilities, and create new possibilities for our society?
L’Arche in the UK is part of a worldwide federation of people with and without learning disabilities sharing life together. We build Communities with people with learning disabilities rather than for them. We nourish everyone’s emotional and spiritual lives as well as providing for their basic needs. We are committed to mutually transforming relationships and a world where all belong. We display the gift of people with learning disabilities to the world.
We are looking for a purpose-driven, innovative and experienced Director of Fundraising and Communications to lead a step change in our fundraising and in how we engage with our supporters, partners and the public.
We have an ambitious mandate for the years to 2025. We want more and more sustainable resourcing to develop our vibrant model of community and faith life. We want to deepen our impact by increasing fundraising for unrestricted and revenue projects, alongside capital projects. We want to shift public perceptions. We want our 11 Communities across the UK to be more visible, influential and connected as incubators of social change, inclusion and empowerment.
As a core leader on our National Team, you will:
• Fundraise sustainable and increasing income year-on-year, by developing an innovative and ambitious fundraising strategy and capabilities.
• Communicate the gift of people with learning disabilities, and L’Arche as a beacon of transformation, through increased public engagement and visibility.
• Lead our growing national Fundraising and Communications Teams (currently 8 people) and nurture the fundraising and communications capacity in our 11 UK Communities.
• Develop partnerships which deepen our learning and our impact on the learning disability sector, on faith communities, on government policy and on wider society.
• Play a central role on the National Team to develop, fund and implement a strategic plan to deliver the L’Arche 2025 mandate and the L’Arche Identity and Mission statements.
The location is flexible. We welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, especially from candidates who are disabled or from a black, Asian or minority ethnic background, since these backgrounds are currently under-represented in L’Arche leadership.

The Product Development Manager will lead on the development and operational implementation of new products, and the evaluation of existing fundraising activities to ensure their continued effectiveness.

A Place in Childhood (APiC) is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) on a mission to promote and conceive Inclusive Child-Friendly Environments through practice-based Research, Advocacy and Action. Our team represents the cutting-edge of theory, research and participatory practice, and underpinned by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), we place children at the heart of everything we do.
What we’re looking for
As our charity grows, we are seeking to diversify income streams and ensure we can understand and meet the emerging needs of a variety of funders. At present, APiC’s funding has come from direct pitches or tenders with public and third sector organisations. Operating in the spirit of a social enterprise, we are now keen to develop a robust, future-ready fundraising strategy that aligns with our business plan and ensure continued promotion of our ideas and activities outside of specific project work. Contributions from a board member with fundraising expertise will also improve our understanding and capacity to submit successful funding bids.
The ideal volunteer would share our aims at improving the implementation of children’s rights and better design and planning of our built environment. An understanding of child and or related funding avenues in the UK would also be of benefit to this role. However, prior experience of working in this area is not required. This is a time of fast growth for the charity, and we see wide and varied opportunities for expanding our trading and service offer for which our new Board Trustee would play a vital role.
