We rely heavily on voluntary donations to fund our vital work. Whatever you feel able to give really will make a difference. With the increasing cuts in funding and the extreme competitiveness to secure funds from national trusts, it makes our job each year much harder. We really appreciate any contribution you can make and of course so do the many, many families that benefit from using our services. Thank you!
The following services are delivered free in the community.
Our full time Educational Advocacy Service cost us approx. £3,500 per month, to provide much needed independent advice and casework support around issues such as exclusions, school transfers, statementing etc.
It costs us nearly £800 to provide counselling and emotional support to 16 young people each week.
Our training workshops for parents can cost anything from £300 – £800 per session and is a powerful tool for empowering parents and their families.
