Our ability to support people with cerebral palsy and their families simply is not possible without the charitable trusts and foundations who help us to ensure specialist therapy, support and information is available to everyone with cerebral palsy in Scotland who needs it.
Thank you to the trust and foundations that support us
Over 85% of our income comes from funding we have raised ourselves, the majority of which in 2021-22 was from charitable trusts and foundations. We are deeply grateful to all those organisations who support us and who share our vision that we need to be an organisation who can provide services for people with cerebral palsy.
We would like to thank all those trustees, grant making teams and advisors for enabling us to ensure we continue to help people throughout Scotland.
In 2021-22 87% of our fundraised income came from grants. A total of £473,887 was awarded in 57 grants. Of these, £249,901 was unrestricted, allowing us to use the grants for organisational running costs.
Multi-year awards are incredibly important to Cerebral Palsy Scotland. They enable us to strategically plan for sustainable service delivery. Thank you to R S MacDonald Charitable Trust, The National Lottery Community Fund and others who support us with their longer term commitments.
