About the organisation

Endometriosis UK

To provide support and information to women with endometriosis and thier families, to raise awareness and campaign for better services and more research into this common but poorly understood disease.

Provide clear, accessible information; provide peer-to-peer support via a helpline, support groups and social media forums; increase knowledge and raise awareness amongst women, the medical profession and the general population; and to support and undertake research into the causes, treatments and cause of this disease.

1 in 10 women suffer from a disease you�ve probably never heard of � endometriosis. Endometriosis is one of the most common gynaecological diseases which can cause excruciating pain (particularly around periods), debilitating fatigue, painful sex as well as other symptoms and impact on all aspects of a young woman�s life including affecting fertility. Around 1.5million UK women aged between 12-45 years have endometriosis and Endometriosis UK provides support and information to anyone who needs help when dealing with this chronic condition.

We are looking for a motivated, organised and caring individual with good IT skills to support us and our fundraisers!

As a small charity, we rely on our fantastic supporters who raise money for the organisation through a whole range of events and activities. The Fundraising Co-ordinator role is crucial to co-ordinating and administering support to ensure the efficient day to day running of the charity’s fundraising activities.

Our challenge is that despite 1 in 10 women suffering from endometriosis, it is a little talked-about and often unrecognised disease. It takes an average of 7.5 years to get a diagnosis in the UK, and results in a yearly £8.2 billion loss to the UK economy in terms of healthcare treatments and loss of education and loss of earnings.

We want to change this - come and be a part of that change.
