Millfields Inspired is a vibrant charity working alongside young people in Stonehouse with the aspiration of engaging with young people, and inspiring them to become enterprising and resilient citizens.  In particular we work with young people in order to show them the world of work and link it with the world of education.  We want children to achieve their potential, to become enterprising and play our part in ensuring Stonehouse is a place its residents can be proud of.

The Charity is relatively young having been established in 2013.  Its main focus has been on the Widening Horizons project, a programme that works with the year 5 children in our seven local primary schools. Most recently it has developed the Grow Stonehouse project and the “Futures” work. Both have benefited from funding from outside sources.

What we require

We require an experienced fundraiser to work with us to review the options in respect to funding our current and future project work. The first phase will be working with us to understand the Charity and its projects and to write a fundraising strategy.  Depending on the success of the first stage the Charity would then wish to offer a retainer of approximately five days a year to work with the Trust and take a lead in formulating and submitting funding applications.
