How are we funded?

As an independent charity, Headway East London is responsible for raising all the money it needs to rent premises, pay staff, run services and develop new initiatives. The total expenditure for this year is expected to be in the region of £1.9 million.


Around 76% of the cost of running Headway services comes from fee income (local authorities / personal budgets and private funding) however not all of our members are eligible to receive statutory support. Other services, for example family support and occupational projects are reliant on charitable donations and fundraising. This is where you can help.

We are also extremely grateful for the support we receive from organisations. We are currently supported by a number of trusts, foundations and partners listed below.
