Staf is supported by a wide variety of organisations, which includes our funders, sponsors, members and partners, but also includes the many organisations who have provided us with in-kind gifts.

Staf's core funding comes from the Scottish Government's Children, Young People and Families Early Intervention Fund and the Adult Learning and Empowering Communities (ALEC) fund, both of which are administered and managed by the Corra Foundation

In 2017, Staf was awarded a grant from the Transform Foundation, allowing us to work with their partner Raising IT to develop our new website.

Youth Justice Voices, our project run in partnership with the Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice (CYCJ) to amplify the voices of care and justice-experienced young people, and Project Return, an exciting new project supporting recovery from trauma, are both funded through the Life Changes Trust

Our Mapping Relationships project, which aims to embed and enhance relationship-based practice across Scotland, is funded through the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation 

Shannon's Box was successfully launched in East Ayrshire Council, with the pilot funded by the National Lottery Community Fund
Books for the boxes were kindly donated by the Scottish Book Trust
