We have been running since 2015 and our current funding allows us to facilitate 97 hours per week of support hours, seeing 76 young people on average.
We are facing a significant funding gap due to increased competition for funding, and tighter limits on funding pots.
We need to raise £5000. The cut in funding we are facing would drop our support hours from 97 to 42.
Our capacity to support young people in the Scottish Borders will drop by 23 per week, even though our waiting list consistently sits with around 12 people waiting for support.
Last year we supported 251 referrals through 1054 support sessions with 5 members of staff.
We need to raise £5000 to save our staff, at their current level, for 2 months.
If you have a fundraising idea please get in touch, and we will support you- please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get you set up with a sponsor form and support.
Help us spread the word, share our campaign posts, talk about our campaign and donate if you are able to.
We are looking for local businesses to help us bridge our funding gap. Opportunities for corporate giving are as follows:
