Welcome to Chronically Marvellous, where we believe that living with chronic conditions should never mean facing life's challenges alone. We are an organisation dedicated to supporting individuals living with chronic illnesses through a range of free services designed to enhance their quality of life.  Our mission is simple: to provide holistic support to individuals with chronic conditions, addressing both their physical and emotional needs.

This could be with organisation like NHS, national charities such as the British Heart Foundation, or our local foodbank. Our organisation is quite different as we work with a community of people who have multiple chronic illnesses, meaning they could require more complex care, and/or have illnesses fighting each other as well as the person. We are a small charity, so outreach and partnerships allow us to reach those who need us most, get the word of CM out there and make sure that anyone who needs support, gets it!

You will be invited to participate in our fundraising and community events.

Proven experience in relationship building Ability to cultivate and nurture relationships with diverse community groups, healthcare providers, and other organisations Experience of public speaking Ideas to execute a successful partnerships strategy Excellent interpersonal, communication, and negotiation skills.
