So much of the work we do is dependent on people just like YOU! Without your support, much of the work would not be possible and capacity of work within the project would decrease.

FINANCE
As a charity we rely heavily on people’s personal donations. Whether it be £5, £10, £20 or £50 a month, every £1 helps go to running the work. As we’re a registered charity, ‘gift-aid’ can be applied so an extra 25p/£1 is claimed back from the government at no extra cost to yourself. We purposefully keep our costs as low for young people as possible to unable all young people to engage no matter their family income. Your money contributes to running clubs such as the Internet Café and making sure we have a full time worker to co-ordinate and run all the work. One off gifts are also welcome and we are incredibly grateful for any support received. Each term, givers receive a newsletter to see how the work is going and how their money is being spent.

   GRANT GIVING

We also look to Trusts as a source of funding. Each year we look to reduce our reliance on grant giving but currently 40% of our income is supported by funders and we are currently looking for more for the coming years to continue the work and make it sustainable.

In the last year we have been supported by The Bewley Charitable Trust, Quinton & Welsh House Farm Youth & Community Affairs Forum, Bishop of Birmingham's Charitable Trust, E F & M G Charitable Trust, The Dorcas Trust, The Corban Trust, Lancaster Foundation, Harry Payne Fund and Grantham Yorke.

If you are a funder and interested in our work, please do contact us.

VOLUNTEER
Without our volunteers, key projects like the Internet Café would simply not happen. Although we have two dedicated workers, they cannot run the provision simply by themselves to meet the high demand of young people wanting to attend. Our volunteers can be any age (young people are looking for role models not just older sibling age but parent and grandparent too). When they were recently asked what attributes they looked for, the most popular responses were people who were: kind, caring, helpful, friendly and fun. If this is you and you want to consider volunteering, get in touch (DBS checks and training will be carried out).

 

   EBAY

We have an online shop where you can by items from us and we receive the proceeds.

You can also sell for us (e.g. give us 10% of what you make from the sale) or donate

to us directly through ebay to give a one off donation.

PRAY
We recognise that for the work to make a difference to our community, we need God’s help too. We already have people committed to praying for us and the work but we always welcome more people to support us in this way. To keep you informed, we’ll send you a termly newsletter and more regular update when specific needs arise. If you're interested, please contact us.
