Societi is funded primarily by donations and contributions from fundraisers. We currently have no sources of grant aid and no core funding. We have no paid staff and do not pay for the office space we use, so our overheads are very light. However - in order to raise awareness and influence change we do incur costs!
We have two major projects which are separately funded, these are our Clinical E-Learning module and our Parent Resource. Development works for these projects have come from specific contributions made by a pharmaceutical company and from our partner, KSSG. See more about our work here.
