Lifelites’ small team has a unique mission to donate life-changing technology packages to give life-limited and disabled children using hospice services a chance to play, be creative, control something for themselves and communicate, for as long as it is possible. We donate this technology, including training on how to use it and technical support, for children using every children’s hospice service in the British Isles.
Purpose of the role
The Fundraising Officer is a key role within our small team, helping to build mutually beneficial relationships between supporters of Lifelites and the work that we can only do with their support.
