Red Kite Family Centre (‘Red Kite’) is facing a critical funding shortfall of approximately £40k pa, exacerbated by the loss of a major corporate sponsor earlier this year. Based on current financial projections, the Centre will be forced to close at the end of July 2023 unless we receive immediate additional funding. We are issuing a heartfelt call-to-arms asking for your help to secure the future of Red Kite and enable us to continue to deliver our vision of Being There for Every Family.
It costs about £100,000 a year to run the Family Centre. We are a community run charity and we receive only a small transition grant from the county council. All the rest of our funding is from donations.
We are very grateful to all the organisations listed on this page for their generous support.
Donations both large and small are very welcome from individuals and organisations/businesses.
We have sponsorship forms and paying in forms if you would like to fundraise for us.
