It costs around £750,000 each year to run Fortalice

Our work is recognised and supported in various ways and through many sources; Local Authority grants, donations from local business and individuals, national and local grant making bodies, self-generated income for services and accommodation and from fund raising activities

Core funding leaves an annual shortfall of around £85.000 which is the challenge we have to meet each year. However, with the constant trend of funding cuts and the demand for efficiency savings this challenge is getting much harder.
