How we are Funded

We’re enormously grateful to our supporters who have continued to fund our work over the last 48 years.

As a registered charity and company limited by guarantee, we are funded by three main income streams:

  1. Charitable donations – we receive donations from charitable trusts, corporate organisations and individuals.
  2. Research grants – we receive research grants from government-funded Research Councils.

In 2015/16 our income was £1,034,064.
