Julia’s House is looking for someone to volunteer to help co-ordinate its friends group in Salisbury. The area has a new Friends’ Group but it is in need of a person to help oversee its activities. The ideal person would be resourceful, motivated, and possess good people, and organisational skills.
Friends’ Groups play an important role in raising funds for, and building awareness of, Julia’s House, the children’s hospice charity. They are made up of local people who work alongside their community, supporting or hosting events or giving talks.
Julia’s House provides regular respite care to children with life limiting conditions. Around 18 months ago we expanded our home-based are over the Dorset border, where we have provided our award-winning care for more than a decade, as Wiltshire families had no access to this sort of frequent support.
Our plan is to build the first children’s hospice based in Wiltshire. It will be a place for families to visit, but also a base from which to operate a comprehensive home-based care service. This landmark project will cost £3.5million to get fully up and running. We have already raised £3.1million of this target – but now we need the support of the Wiltshire public to hit the target, and also to fund the on-going care service.
If you are interested in this role or would like further information about Friends’ Groups, please call Liz on 01980 677105 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
