How we use your donations

We’re a small organisation and we don’t have huge resources or a large income. We work hard for funds – and we need your help!

We rely on donations and fundraising to help fund the innovative work that we do supporting people in the community with mental health issues and fighting discrimination. We’re here to help people live life to the full, and our work wouldn’t be possible without you.
