How to Help

Turning Tides needs just over £2.4 million a year to fund all of the services we offer. Therefore, we need to raise a lot of money to finance this. As well as the money side of things, we also receive donations of time, food and goods which enable us to help the 1100 individuals who turn to us each year for help.

As part of our fundraising efforts, we organise events such as a sponsored Sleepout and a sponsored walk, we also have a Fundraising Committee who run their own events and collections. The Committee will also attend other functions where there is a possibility of raising some money.

We could not continue to do the work we do without the generosity of individuals, schools, companies, churches, community groups, etc. giving their time, money and donations.
