Knights Youth Centre is an independent Christian charity, which has been supporting the local area of Lambeth since 1936. We believe that each young person is unique, talented and beautiful. For many KYC is home. We want to ensure that each young person is equipped and confident to make the right choices and play a positive role in their community.

KYC receives very little public funding and works hard to raise its own funds to continue delivering essential services to local young people who need this support the most. In this role you’ll provide strong expertise and knowledge of application processes and varied funding sources, working in partnership with our Fundraising Team, made up of volunteers and led by a KYC Trustee.

This role is a crucial part of the work we do, as we can only continue to support and develop our young people with sufficient funds and good contacts.

We are therefore looking for someone who can share our vision and heart for our community and its young people, as well as bring fundraising experience that can help generate new sources of income for KYC. If this is you, apply!
