We receive support for Free2b Girls from local businesses when they are inspired by what we do.
We apply for small grants when they are relevant to what we do.
We fundraise, we crowdfund, we accept donations when they come.
Often councils come on board, sometimes banks or individuals.
Neighbourhood and Commmunity Houses are always fantastic supports
Sometimes we don't know if we'll have enough
But we always survive
Because we're creative, resourceful and passionate about caring for the future
And motivated by the girls who come to our groups each week...
