RoSPA creates fundraising role

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents is opening a fundraising department for the first time in its 90-year history.

The health and safety charity is recruiting a fundraising manager to develop a strategy for donor recruitment and campaigns.

Until now, RoSPA has relied on membership, government grants, events, sponsorship and training fees for its funding.

"We have seen other organisations benefit from actively soliciting donations with mail campaigns or street collections and we feel it's time for us to try it too," said Janice Cave, director of public affairs at RoSPA. "This is not a short-term exercise. We want to secure solid long-term backing."

The new role will mean big changes for the organisation. "We understand the ramifications of this move, but we have debated it internally and will welcome it with open arms," said Cave.
