Volunteer Wanted! New Project with Hands Inc.

Hands Inc.

Project summary:

Hands Inc. are looking to expand their work, scaling up their innovative programme of activities and launching a new campaign.

Hands Inc. are looking to develop a fundraising strategy. In order to do this, the organisation would like to identify the people and organisations that have reason to support the charity and recognise an effective way to engage and communicate with supporters.
This project could be split into two phases:
1.      Diagnosis and prioritisation – reviewing data on current service provision (costs, resources, sources of funding, impacts) and helping the Directors/Trustees identify and prioritise options for new service development (including potential risks)
2.      Development of a scale-up plan and supporting fundraising strategy – covering the organisational requirements (capacity, capability) as well as the funding
Knowledge of the voluntary sector and/or of funders would be helpful. A range of OR skills would be appropriate: problem structuring, options assessment & prioritization plus data collection and analysis.

Time commitment5-10 days
LocationRemotely or in our office in N16

Please read projectscope and if you feel you are able to offer your assistance please complete the application form and return along with your CV to by Friday 19th January.

Information about the organisation:
Main activities of the organisation
Hands Inc developed in 2001 in response to the need for massage and respite care within distressed families. Complementary therapies now form a small part of their operation (10% or less). The main focus of their work (and the focus of any future expansion activity) is supporting menopausal women and reducing the stigma and negativity menopausal women face.
Hands Inc, is a registered Charity whose mission is to inspire health and wellbeing; this is achieved through the provision of holistic support and healthy lifestyle activities.
