We want to be transparent and accountable about how we are funded and how we spend your donations – please let us know if you’ve got a question.
The effects of cuts to services are affecting different people in different ways and we have seen a significant increase in women needing and seeking support. In order to respond to this, we have undertaken a strategic decision to grow our work and develop both our direct services and support for projects working with women in towns and cities across the UK.
To enable this growth and to ensure we are working towards systemic change we are aiming to raise over £550,000 in 2021-2022 and £700,000 in 2022-2023. We do this at a time of reduced public spending and competition for charitable funding being as high as ever. We recognise that medical research, animal charities and hospices will always draw the majority of funding, but we do see an increased awareness of the exploitation that women and girls face. This is seeing a gradual increase in resources being channelled to support those affected.
With this in mind, and to ensure sustainable growth, Beyond the Streets seeks to grow a broad support base, keep a close eye on our use of charitable funds and look to keep overheads down.
We are grateful to all those who support the work of the charity and enable the impact to be made in women’s lives.
“Your service has totally changed my life as you listened – a problem shared is halved so it didn’t seem so huge as there is no other support network like yours with specialist expertise as you have and experience in understanding and helping women move on.” Woman supported by Beyond Support
Whilst we have listed some of our larger grant funders below, there are too many individuals, grant-making trusts, local businesses, churches and volunteers to mention. We remain indebted however to this growing group of supporters and those who organise events to raise funds for our work.
