In today’s landscape of ever shrinking public funding, third sector providers such as Alzheimer’s Support have become a crucial component in the provision of specialist services. Good support comes at a price no local authority can afford, so it falls to charities like us to bridge the funding gap.

It took 30 years to build the charity into the organisation it is today and much thought goes into making services and activities sustainable. Major factors in securing a relevant and rich portfolio of services are diverse income streams.

Alzheimer’s Support’s work is partly funded by Wiltshire Council and the local NHS (around 30%). Some of our services, such as day care and support at home, attract a subsided fee and this accounts for around 50% of our income. 

For the rest, around £300,000 a year, we leave no stone unturned. Our fundraising includes applying to grant-making trusts and foundations, to corporate partners, community groups and Wiltshire’s Area Boards. We organise our own events including our annual Walk to Remember. Then there are the efforts of wonderful individuals who go to great lengths to raise funds for us.
