Our Finances

We make every penny count!

More than 90p in every £1 donated to Arty-Folks goes directly towards
our work with service users.

We spend less than 10% on premises and overheads such as
phone, IT, and office costs.

Why donate LOCAL and to SMALL charities?
Because your money will have a direct impact on the lives of people around you!

A huge thank you to the Trusts and Foundations for their  support that has enabled us to offer an uninterrupted service since 1995.

We are most grateful to our corporate partners Arthur J. Gallagher and Deeley Construction Ltd. for their generous donations.


Our commitment to helping our service users transform their lives is backed by robust impact measurement.

Arty-Folks’ Fundraising Promise


As an Arty-Folks supporter, you are playing a direct role in helping us change the lives of the people who need our services. Without your support, this work would not be possible and we will never take it for granted.  We are fully committed to being transparent about the way we use funds and we will process your donation promptly and acknowledge it in line with your wishes.

We will be honest and open in our communications with you. Sometimes, we will need to change some of the details of our beneficiaries to respect their right to privacy and confidentiality. However, the stories we share are true and in their own words.  They will give you a picture of the nature of our work and what your support is helping to achieve.

More than 90p in every £1 donated to Arty-Folks goes directly towards our frontline services and we spend less than 10% on overheads such as phone, IT, and office costs.   We need to raise £70,000 each year to run the whole programme that support 150 individuals to improve mental well-being.  This amounts to £467 per person! 

This is not a lot compared to what most charities need to raise, but it is a lot to us!  Unless you specifically tell us otherwise, we will use your donation towards the area of greatest need in our work.
