KIDS, the national charity for children and young people with disabilities, is set to expand its corporate fundraising activities and has created a new role in the organisation with that aim in mind.
Samantha Scott, the recently appointed head of corporate and major trusts, said: "For the first couple of months I'll be visiting the KIDS centres, talking to the people there and using the findings to work on a corporate and trust strategy.
"KIDS has already developed strong relationships with a number of companies through high-profile events, boards of trustees, patrons and committees.
I plan to develop these relationships."
KIDS' revenue comes from major events, trusts and regional fundraising.
The charity is also keen to expand its donor base. "As a national charity offering assistance at a local level, we're in a good position to develop support through corporate membership and sponsorship," said Stuart Willson, director of marketing.
