Who we are How we are funded How we are funded Every element of our support service is provided completely free of charge. Each year it costs us around £400,000 to support the hundreds of children who access our service. Although we receive a small amount of grant funding from charitable trusts, we don’t receive any money for our work from either central government or from local authorities. We rely on our local communities to help us to raise the money we need to continue our vital work. Our team of fundraisers work in partnership with volunteers, schools, corporates and community groups to organise events and challenges that will help us to secure donations.
