This organisation has ambitious plans for the future to reach every child and every family in the UK affected by neuroblastoma. The Head of Fundraising will play a crucial role in securing substantial income and developing the exposure and understanding of the key work the organisation does.
The Head of Fundraising will enhance and deliver the fundraising strategy that will maximise support from a variety of income streams.
