As a charity we are completely dependent on the generosity of others both for grant giving and for running the charity. We value each donation whether big or small as anything makes a difference. In the spirit of transparency, we would like to share how we are currently funded.
Our Crisis Grants are one-off payments to support someone experiencing an unforeseen or life changing circumstance, such as bereavement, illness or injury and who has no resources to meet associated costs which could include funeral expenses, moving home, travel to hospital expenses, home repairs.
Thanks to their generosity, we were able to increase our initial Covid-19 Emergency Fund offering to include other care staff and many different scenarios born from the consequences of Covid-19.
The support this year, in particular for our Covid-19 Emergency Fund, has been overwhelming and very much appreciated as it has allowed us to broaden our offering and continue to give grants to those in need.
We have previously accepted donations via our website on a one-off or monthly basis and via Just Giving, Virgin Money Giving and now predominantly via Enthuse.
