What we DON’T do:

In the interest of clarity and to avoid confusion, here is a (non exhaustive) list of what we are NOT able to do:

  • We do NOT provide Grants to any projects. We will where possible direct people to where assistance may be available.
  • We do NOT receive public money for operations. Any public money we receive is for projects and must be matched by our own private funds.
  • We do NOT compete with Private Sector Projects.
  • We do NOT carry out the work of other voluntary organisations though we will work in support of them.
