Role

The Post

We are seeking to recruit a Project Fundraiser to secure and maintain current and new income streams with the potential to support the work of the charity.

The Project

The Louise Project is a Christian antipoverty project operating in Govanhill to enable families living with hardship to live flourishing lives and to enable communities to thrive. Govanhill is the most ethnically diverse area of Scotland, and we welcome all people to receive support. The most recent migrant population to arrive are the European Roma from Romania and Slovakia and they are the dominant group support by the project.

The project offers families access to 5 well researched programmes of support, to break the cycle of generational poverty, as follows:

  • Community Drop-in: Focuses on building relationships, home visits, providing a ‘space to be’ and access to essentials & a project shop that is run by beneficiaries.
  • Community Advocacy: Support to manage issues such as immigration status, housing, debt, utilities, welfare benefits.
  • Building Better Futures: Supports personal growth to enhance wellbeing and the development of transferable skills, i.e., literacy & digital skills, budgeting, college entry level classes and supported employment.
  • Building Community: There are over 60 languages spoken in Govanhill, racial tension can be palpable. Building social trust across ethnic groups reduces anxiety and discrimination.
  • Hopeful Futures: develops a sense of self, life skills and a knowledge and understanding of systems and the causes and consequences of poverty.
