Acorn is funded by donations from individuals, grant-making bodies, and some Churches. We make no charge for our services.
This page explains how you can support us, and gives details of upcoming events where you can also show your support for Acorn.
Obtaining the funds to continue our work is always a major challenge and takes up a lot of staff and trustees’ time.
Fundraising can take many forms, and we would like to invite you to help us raise funds. For example you may like to put on an event such as coffee morning or cake sale. Some people undertake ambitious projects like running a marathon or a parachute jump! Perhaps you know someone who might like to do one for Acorn! Or maybe you and your friends would support Acorn with a monthly donation?
Acorn is a team effort in every sense, and we are so grateful for all the support we receive. Contact the office if you would like more information or leaflets. Thank you.
