FUNDRAISING AND DONATIONS

 

Historically, our funding has been almost entirely from government initiatives (statutory) and income associated with clients' housing benefit which we receive via the local authority. With constant funding cuts, we have been developing a number of new ways for our incredible supporters to get involved and help us continue our life changing work!
