Dyscover is mainly funded by a variety of (mostly) one-off grants from charitable trusts (66%). Around 10% of our income is received from individual donations and 8% from fundraising events. Our members pay fees that equate to around 13% of income. Each member pays a contribution per session, which normally equates to around £150 per term. We operate our sessions on a three-terms-per-year basis. We also offer activities during holiday periods.
We received a lottery grant in 2009 of £141,000 which is being paid over a three year period. This money is held in a restricted fund account and used for the recruitment and salary of a volunteer co-ordinator, the recruitment of additional volunteers, training for all volunteers, volunteer support and expenses, promotion of volunteering opportunities and a small allocation for overhead costs.
We receive no statutory or local authority funding.
