Charity Launches Appeal for Urgent Funds

Due to a declining membership and with current funding coming to an end, we launch an urgent campaign to raise funds to ensure our services continue until we are able to secure long term sustainable funding. We have successfully managed a three-year Big Lottery Fund project providing a helpline service and awareness raising campaigns; supported membership, local groups and research projects whilst reaching almost 40 thousand people on our social network pages.
