Our funding & resources
Until 2011, CCC-B received grant support from a variety of public bodies which enabled us to deliver our core services free to service users. Changes in social care and Legal Aid policy combined with the general public spending cuts have impacted heavily on our funding base, although they have also acted as drivers to reviewing our services and income generation.
The CCC-B board and management team are conducting a top to bottom review, and formulating a sustainable development plan which will include a new charging structure but also new services.
Our existing funders are:
Big Lottery Awards for All
To fund the Dementia Roundtable project from September 2015 for 12 months.
CCC-B has received a Big Lottery Awards for All grant enabling us to carry out a one year dementia project. Dementia is increasing at a faster rate among the UK’s ethnic minorities yet fewer people from ethnic communities seek a diagnosis from their GP. This means people with dementia are not being treated and carers are not getting help.
This project aims to improve the care and support of individuals with dementia in the Chinese community by:
- raising awareness of dementia
- providing information on dementia to families, carers and other parties
- referring people for diagnosis where appropriate
- offering brain training andreminiscence activities
The project will be led by Kate Gordon, Senior Care Officer.
