HIP in Cheshire provides information, local social activities, courses and mutual support to people with acquired head injuries, their families, friends and carers. The charity also holds monthly coffee mornings throughout Cheshire where members can meet new friends, socialise and support each other.
The HIP team comprises of two part-time members of staff, a group of dedicated trustees and a team of volunteers.
Introduction to the Team
I am responsible for the day to day operational management of the Charity. This includes responsibility for policy and procedure, implementing the annual operational plan and supporting Trustees in overseeing the 3 year strategy. I work with key supporters and donors to secure funding to ensure HIP can continue to undertake it's vital work for members.
I work with members, Trustees, staff, volunteers and donors to ensure HIP in Cheshire meets it's core aim of ensuring no one living in Cheshire with a brain injury is isolated or lonely.
It's a fantastic charity to work for and every day is different! I continue to be inspired by our members who share their personal journeys and stories with HIP to make it a truly personal, heart warming charity to be part of.
My key responsibility is fundraising. As a small charity, every penny that we spend is self generated so we have an ongoing programme of fundraising initiatives from large scale events such as our Annual Corporate Golf Day to charity fairs, bingo nights and bag packs at local supermarkets. I also focus on developing relationships with businesses throughout Cheshire who can support us financially as well as with resources and manpower — a spare hands of hands is always really appreciated.
I'm lucky that my role also involves delivering our key services so I get to spend lots of time with our members at coffee mornings and trips. This allows me to get to know everyone and the journeys they have been on since their head injuries and keeps me motivated to raise funds for HIP.
