What is KEEN


Work with us

KEEN London is hiring!

Good at fundraising?

KEEN London is the only charity in the capital providing one-to-one support at free sports and activity sessions for children with disabilities.  We have tripled in size in the last five years and have ambitious plans to grow even further.  To help us achieve these goals, we are looking for an experienced fundraiser to manage our fundraising strategy and tell the amazing KEEN story to more grant-givers.

We are looking for someone to:

  • Take a critical look at our current fundraising plan and let us know what we could be doing better
  • Suggest new avenues for fundraising, including trusts & foundations; corporate partnerships and fundraising events
  • Prepare compelling bids
  • Provide reports to the board of trustees

We are looking for an experienced fundraiser who understands the sector and has significant expertise in bid-writing, especially with trusts and foundations. Some experience of charities in the children & young people or disabilities sectors would be preferable (but not vital).

We need someone who is a self-starter, with excellent writing and selling skills. As a small charity, someone who can work independently, with the support of a committed team, would be a great asset.

Time commitment: TBC but in the range of 1 – 2 days per week

Location: from home, with occasional office visits (Hackney)

Rate: TBC based on skills and experience.

Do get in touch if you think you could help make a different at KEEN London!

Thanks to all of you at Keen for giving me as a parent, an opportunity to say how grateful we are for the respite we get every Saturday.It has transform our Saturday’s. We started coming to the session at the start of 2014 and we have rarely missed any sessions. My daughter who has autism and muscle dystrophy enjoys going and looks forward to the jam packed activities which are always fun and talks about them endlessly. The coaches are all very experience and help the kids and encourages them to get involve or just talk to them and listen. In the summer my daughter went to her first residential trip for 2 days.She had so much fun and still talks about it to this day.They also went to the Aquarium and soft play. Thank you all for your support.

Stella, KEEN parent
