How we are funded
We work closely with the NHS but do not receive any NHS funding. So we rely on class fees, grants, charitable donations and the generous support of the public and our community to help us deliver our vital services.
Class fees currently cover around 50% of our class costs, including hall hire, equipment and paying our exercise instructors and assistants. That leaves us with the challenge of finding the the shortfall – a task made tougher by the Covid pandemic, which seriously restricted our fundraising activities for many months and has had a long-lasting impact on class numbers.
Our Trustees, Membership Secretary and Fundraising Team are all volunteers, giving their time and expertise to the charity to ensure our service continues. But we can’t exist without additional support from the community.
There are many ways you can help, from embarking on a sponsored challenge, or coming along to one of our fundraising events, to volunteering or becoming a regular monthly donor.
