7. Disclosure of funding sources
As a charity receiving no government funding, corporate sponsorship – both from the pharmaceutical industry and the wider business community – is a core component of our financial wellbeing. Commercial support enables us to maintain a viable level of service and to develop and expand our work. In 2013 we will need a total of £75,000 from corporate sources.

Sponsorship packages are tailored to match both the requirements of the sponsor and those of the charity to ensure mutually agreed objectives and outcomes.
