Our project costs include:
Our central costs include all the back-office staff needed for services to run. These include:
Together they ensure that we are compliant with charity Law, company Law, and regulations around employment, health and safety, and housing. They make sure that staff are recruited, bills are paid, and opportunities for new projects identified.
Our fundraising team is responsible for sustaining the income of Cyfannol so that we can continue to deliver services. This is done through:
The majority of our income comes from public sector contracts and grants to deliver specific projects. Whilst not a major source of income, our community fundraising is incredibly important as it enables us to fund a range of activities that we have difficulty funding elsewhere, including transport to refuge, food for new families arriving, and family activities within the community.
Our Board of Trustees, who are all un-paid, set our salaries based on benchmarking with similar sized charities and roles.
We try to prioritise the salaries of our front-line staff, and we pay them as much as we are able to within the boundaries of our government contracts. A full-time support worker with us currently earns £22,500 per annum, which is at the top end of current salaries within the sector.
We legally have to report to the Charity Commission on an annual basis our staffing numbers and pay which can be found here.
In a charity, profit is called surplus – as in a surplus of income. When we make a surplus, this goes into our reserves, which is the income we set aside for when our income falls. We also use this surplus for funding pilot projects, unexpected costs such as a new boiler for an office, or costs that we have trouble fundraising for such as emergency bed and breakfast if we are unable to get a family into refuge straight away.
They treat you like family from the moment you meet them, they go way above and beyond, and I will always be grateful to the wonderful staff at Cyfannol Women’s Aid.
Our annual reports highlight what we’ve done to create change and raise awareness of domestic abuse and sexual violence.
None of this would be possible without the help of our dedicated supporters deciding to take action – from fundraising and donating to support our services to raising awareness in their local communities.
