Funding

CCS is a registered charity (1002667). The vast majority of our income is dependent on individual donations from people who believe in our aims, though we do receive occasional grants from trusts and other funding bodies. These grants, however, are increasingly difficult to obtain, as many organisations no longer fund general running costs (eg staff and rent), preferring to fund, for example, buying new equipment or a specific one off mini project. CCS is very much a long-term commitment to the children and the area, and, therefore, individual regular donations are a vital part of our survival. To that end we would like to encourage you to give a regular donation through our Friends scheme by clicking here friends

On Saturdays we operate entirely on a donation basis. That means, for example, that those children who come week by week from families on a low income are never excluded.
