How we're funded

We have unique model, whereby a handful of paid-for services, as well as grants and funds help us keep some elements of our support free for those most in need.

Our payment model

Where does the money come from?

We are fortunate to receive funding in many different ways.

Having a diverse funding base increases our flexibility and opportunities for learning, and lessens the risk to our organisation if one funding source decreases or ends unexpectedly.

"We've supported TLC for a number of years and it really has been like watching your child grow up! We are so impressed with the commitment, honesty and passion demonstrated by the whole team and we're just pleased to be helping make it all happen."

Our services are commissioned by a wide range of organisations throughout the North and beyond. As well as longer term commissions and standard packages, we are always open to discussions regarding more flexible approaches, testing new programmes or services – or developing something bespoke.

We rely on the generosity of many Trusts and Foundations to help us provide our services to those who need them most – but cannot afford to pay.

We offer services for which there is a cost.

As we are a non-profit organisation, anything you pay goes directly into service delivery and towards supporting others who may not be able to afford to pay.

A note about client payments

It costs us money to pay our staff to deliver each session of support, ensure they are properly supervised, and to cover venue hire, travel, IT costs and equipment.

We are committed to paying our staff a fair salary, and with this in mind we have a careful balance to strike.

Our session pricing has been carefully worked out to ensure we can fully cover our costs, while offering good value for money to our customers.
