Join or Start a Committee

Chai could not do without its wonderfully enthusiastic and dedicated committees who do the essential job of fundraising. With no statutory funding, it is down to these devoted individuals and groups that Chai can provide all its specialised services.

Our committees fill the year with exciting events to appeal to every age group and all interests, including gift sales, talks, walks, sports competitions and adventure challenges. Some committees host several activities throughout the year, others focus on one-off events.

As well as being a rewarding experience to raise funds and bring awareness of Chai and its services to a wider community, being part of a committee is an enjoyable way to expand one’s skills set. 

We’re here to help you!

Chai’s experienced fundraising team will provide all the advice and support you need to help you get an event up and running and ensure it is a success.

You can start a new committee or join one of our existing committees. We’re always happy to welcome new members.
