Fundraising is vital to us.

We get grants from a number of major donors and we are extremely grateful to them for our support. However, grants can often only be used for specific activities and so we rely on general fundraising to pay for many of our overall running costs, including staff and office costs.

Here are some of the ways you can support us.

Donate on PayPal
