Being open and transparent is one of our key visions and values. Here you can view who we have been funded by and who currently funds us.
Our funding is currently held in a bank account through an informal incubation relationship with TACT. TACT have no managerial role within the movement but simply hold our funds.
We pay above national living wage and cover counselling costs. This is to prevent care experienced people being placed into further
poverty because they want to create change in the system they grew up in.
We aim to be a movement that doesn't ask anyone to do any work for free (unless they ask too!) and has pushes to pay people an amount of money that enables them to do more than simply "exist" while working.
Any work is paid at £11.50 an hour for casual work.
Full Time staff pay is set at £450 a week for 36 hours.
