The role is a full time permanent position, however part time working may be considered. We are offering the Assistant Area Fundraiser a salary of £18,640 - £24,680 per annum.

Hope House is a bright, homely, active and supportive place situated in Morda, Oswestry.  We’re a charity that cares for children with serious conditions, who aren’t expected to live longer than early adulthood.  We help them enjoy the best possible quality of life and be as comfortable, happy and fulfilled as they can.  We support their parents and families too, who often find it hard to cope.  All our services are free, but to carry on funding them we need to raise over £6 million every year - almost all of it through the local community.
