As an independent registered charity we are responsible for raising funds for all our work.

We receive Grant Aid from Nottinghamshire County Council and support in kind from Nottingham City Council. Also, we raise additional funds from subscriptions received from participating schools and donations from grant making trusts, the corporate sector and individuals.

Offers of funding for our general activities, for development or for specific activities or items are always welcome and mutually advantageous publicity can be arranged. Alternatively we will gratefully receive bona fide “Anonymous” donations.

Our main items of expenditure are staffing, volunteers’ travelling expenses and books, games and other resources for children.

We also welcome offers of help in kind such as books and games. We particularly welcome help with fund-raising, promotion and publications.
