Where Your Money Goes
Like many charities and community projects, the recession of the last few years has had a major impact, as the need for our services has risen tremendously. These are difficult times for us all, but due to people's great generosity, our little project has been able to keep going.
Transparency is more important than ever before, which is why we are registered as a charity, and adhere to a strict financial policy. ALL FUNDRAISING goes directly to help our clients through our various programmes—there are no staff bonuses here!!!
We have no funding for our educational programmes. Grants and fundraising have allowed us to run some of our training with youth, and events such as our Designer Drug Training.
Due to fundraising in previous years we were able to buy vouchers to help clients who are going into a treatment centre to get basics like clothing and footwear. We have been able to help people who are coming out of treatment and are struggling to put food on the table with groceries. On occasion a client of ours would have been sleeping on the street for the night, and we were able to get them a B&B or a hostel, if we cannot find them a place in emergency accommodation, and help several clients under stressful situations to take respite
We have no budget for office maintenance. Due to grant aid, we were able to develop this website to reach more people, and able to get some much needed office equipment and printed materials.
Thanks to financial support, we have been able to facilitate some wonderful, uplifting, community events. These have included the Matt Talbot HOPE and Recovery Service, a Christmas Party for our Client’s children, Family Fun Day, Client’s recovery celebrations, and a Community Concert.
As well as fundraising and helping our own clients, we participated or organised several other community fundraising activities to help other projects and individuals. These ranged from bereavements, homelessness, serious illness, and tragic circumstances.Members of H.O.P.E. attended protests and marches on issues affecting those we represent such as homelessness and water charges. We take an active role in our community and support positive actions.
