Gerard Mitchell, Fundraising Manager

I manage StreetDoctors fundraising, including all the grants and donations which enable us to provide all our services. It involves lots of planning, budgets, and requests for support. Donating really makes a huge difference – with such a small organisation it means your money goes directly to the services we provide for young people – so if you donate right now it would be amazing and make everyone here so happy! Thank you!
