- Is there any help with funding
- Funding Notes
Initially we were helped by Berkshire Community Foundation to get set up. Subsequently Bracknell Forest Borough Council have supported us through appropriate funding to assist in the financing of external British Sign Languae (BSL) interpreters and certain ongoing running costs. That source of funding is now coming to an end however.
