Focus Birmingham is a specialist charity providing expert advice, support and care to anyone in the Birmingham and wider area affected by sight loss and disability. We are very proud of our history and ‘making lives better’ for people with visual impairment and complex needs in and around Birmingham. You will be part of a team that is passionate and dedicated to achieving its core objectives to deliver quality services that are ‘user led’ as much as possible.

The organisation employs over 120 staff and provides a wide range of high quality, innovative services to support visually impaired and disabled people to increase their independence, exercise choice and have more confidence in their everyday lives.

This is an exciting opportunity for a new trustee to be appointed to the Board. We look forward to hearing from all individuals who feel they have the relevant income generation knowledge and experience in the areas of grant applications and fundraising to help ensure our ongoing financial sustainability.

You will oversee the ongoing development of the charity’s fundraising strategy and work with the board and management to recognise fundraising opportunities. The successful applicant will advise the Board and the charity on best practices and regulatory and legal requirements when conducting fundraising activities.
