Thank you to all the generous supporters and partners who make a vital contribution to our work, who allow us to develop and realise the full ambition of our programme.

As a registered charity (No.1119738), all donations from UK businesses qualify for corporation tax relief. Donations from individuals who are UK tax-payers qualify for Gift Aid, which allows DRAF to claim an extra 25p on every pound donated.
