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

Connecting Voices is funded by the Big Lottery's Improving Lives fund and we are supported in running this project by East Ayrshire Council. You can find out more about our Connecting Voices project here: Connecting Voices.

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.

In addition to this, we have received sponsorship from the following organisations:

  • Care Visions sponsor our Care Leavers into Employment focus group and sponsored young people's participation at our October 2016 Practitioners' Gathering.
