Please consider making a donation to support our continuing work

We are an independent charity affiliated to Relationships Scotland (a membership based Organisation with a National Office in Edinburgh, which is made up of 21 local Services as its members). The word “charity” sometimes causes confusion.  It doesn’t mean that we can offer a free service; rather, that we are a non-profit organisation which returns all its income into the services that we provide. It also means that while we charge for some of our services, we offer flexible concessionary rates to individuals or families on a low income - we won’t let fees become an obstacle to helping as many people as we can. Especially, if you are struggling to meet costs due to COVID19 restrictions please contact us, we will help. 

The Organisation:

- faces all the normal overheads of any business,

- only recently invested heavily in a new building in Dundee to improve facilities,

- continuously invests in resources, toys, equipment to improve families’ experiences,

- continuously invests in training and expanding its practitioner-base and workforce to maintain the highest of practice standards.

While there are great variations between the expenses we incur for the different types of appointments we offer, on average

            it costs us about £58.50 to arrange each appointment.

Currently, just over 65% of our income is from Local Authority and Scottish Government funding (these are specific to certain services and local authority areas). Last year, fees contributed 24% of our overall income but this still leaves an annual shortfall of approximately £20,000. To help our efforts, please consider a donation to help with our running costs even if you are using a free service.

*Generally, payment is due at the time of the ongoing appointments, and cancellation fees may apply. Set up fees are non-refundable.
