Our Funding sources

Before we do any work – it costs £2000 a year for us to operate – premises, insurance, safety, tools and materials. We have no general funding for our fixed costs. In 2019-20 our funding sources were:

  • 8% direct donations
  • 10% donations for specific projects
  • 14% funding for infrastructure, materials, etc. (mainly from trusts)
  • 68% payments for agreed projects (mainly from local councils and other organisations)
