How the charity is funded

The Growing Space is supported by several sources:

  • Small grants and charitable trusts 35%
  • Direct payments 15%
  • Donations 4%
  • Local Authorities 2%
  • This year we are using our reserves to keep running and are seeking more funding.

Funding is usually set for 2 to 3 years, and provides staffing and resources for a particular project. This allows us to develop new activities but it also means we have to keep alert to new funding opportunities and find ways to sustain our core activities.

When clients are referred to us from some practitioners, we are often able to charge for our services which contributes to the support they receive.
