How we spend our money
Since being established over ten years ago, it has always been our ethos to provide financially accessible services and support.
We do not receive any Government funding and wholly rely on the small margins of profit we make on our antenatal classes, donations and funding from various corporate pots when available.
None of the team take salaries, we are all self employed in order to maximise incoming revenues. Administration is voluntarily run by the charity's founders.
Any profits made subsidise those on income support or going through times of financial hardship. After room hire, refreshments, insurance and general running costs there is little profit left.
Donations from pool hire subsidise one to one emotional health support.
Bespoke projects rely on external funding. We are grateful to Eveson Trust and the National Lottery Community Fund for supporting some of our postnatal emotional support services.
