Bid writer for a not-for-profit

Say It With Your Chest

You did not enter a postcode in the search, or the postcode for this role is unknown.

We are a not-for-profit called Say It With Your Chest. Our vision is to create a world where young people are supported to thrive, realise their potential and build a better future for themselves.

We have three aims that are at the core of the organisation:

- reduce the rate of exclusions in schools by decreasing persistent disruptive behaviour.

- empower young people to raise their aspirations and break their negative behaviour cycles

- inform and influence public and policy awareness


We work with students who are at the highest risk of being excluded because there are many negative outcomes that can happen as a result of being excluded from school. For example:

- Being excluded from school is a factor that will increase a young person’s risk of child criminal exploitation (National Crime Agency, 2018).

- Not engaging with school and being excluded are very strong indicators for those who are at risk of involvement in youth violence (Youth Safety Taskforce, 2018).

- An excluded student is four times more likely to be jailed as an adult (The University of Edinburgh, 2016).

- School exclusions make already vulnerable young people more vulnerable, as being excluded leads to a reduction in the number of hours that a student spends in a supervised environment (All-Party Parliamentary Groups, 2019).


We would like the volunteer to help with :

- Researching trusts and foundations that are aligned to our vision and mission

- Identifying grants that we can apply for

- Writing and developing grant applications

- Effectively communicating our mission and programmes to potential funders

- Tracking and creating a calendar of grant deadlines and proposals submitted
