We currently receive funding to employ staff, fund ongoing and future training and development programmes from a range of sources:

Awards for all, North & South Lanarkshire Councils, charitable donations and funds raised by our dedicated fundraisers are all greatly appreciated and absolutely essential.

Funds raised by our fundraisers are from a wide range of fundraising events.
The Funding we receive plus the funds raised at fundraising Events allow the group to provideĀ our comprehensive range of Support Services.
We are constantly pursuing alternative avenues of funding to ensure the future development and survival of the organisation.
