How We Are Funded

How we are funded

We are a local charity and all of our care is provided free of charge. However, it costs us around £25,650* a day to provide that care.

We rely on the following income to fund our services.

  • About £5,800 comes from the NHS
  • In the last financial year around £1,950 was funded by COVID related Government Grants
  • For the remaining £17,900 we rely on Gifts in Wills, donations, our shops and other income
  • Every day we rely on supporters to leave us £7,400 as Gifts in Wills
  • Every day we rely on your fundraising activities to raise £4,400
  • Every day we rely on people like you to donate and buy so our shops can raise £4,800
