ALL ABOUT ... - Funding
The Playground costs around £350,000 a year to run, with as little as 5% of the money it needs each year coming from local authority grants.
Heavily reliant on the support of the local community, 53% of the Playground's annual income is raised through grants, general donations and fundraising events and through the generosity of local business. Where users feel able to make a small donation, their contributions play a vital part in helping to keep the Playground going.
Since 2004, we have been forging contacts with local companies and organisations. This led to the creation of our Guardianship scheme, which could potentially generate a further 15% of our income.
Any financial support we receive plays a vital part in helping to maintain the stimulating and ever-changing environment which is enjoyed by, and of such benefit to, so many children and adults with special needs.
