Age Exchange has been improving the health and wellbeing of older people for over 30 years. Following a new partnership with care provider Community Integrated Care (CIC) we are looking to expand, taking our specialist Reminiscence Arts intervention for people with dementia to other parts of the UK outside of London. It’s a really exciting time for us and a chance to achieve our vision of increasing the number of people who benefit from our work.

Nearly four years ago we recruited our first fundraiser and it has made an enormous difference to how we work.  We’ve introduced a CRM system (eTapestry), started direct mail marketing appeals and developed local partnerships and corporate relationships.  The current post holder is moving abroad and we are looking for someone who can lead on our core fundraising programme.  The role is focused on generating core funds and diversifying income streams including corporate relationships, individual giving, legacy fundraising and providing some support to our volunteer community fundraising group ‘Friends of Age Exchange’.

We are a family friendly employer and offer flexibility in how the 21 hours a week are worked.  Please call if you would like to discuss this further (Rebecca Packwood 020 8314 9105).
