We are incredibly grateful for the support of all our funders, and would welcome enquiries from any organisation interested in supporting our work, no matter the amount you feel able to give.

We are happy to receive both unrestricted funding and restricted grants towards our specific projects.

We are currently seeking restricted grants for the following areas of our work:

Befriending scheme

Connects people who are feeling isolated with a companion volunteer who provides a regular friendly listening ear through a check-in call.
