Real Baby Milk is funded through various streams. The bulk of our funding comes through service level agreements and commissioned projects which are paid by public organisations – such as Primary Care Trusts, Local Authorities, Hospitals Trusts or other health funded bodies.
This makes up approximately 50% of our income. We also fundraise by the selling of our products (mugs / t-shirts) and we also make a very small amount through the sales of our resources (dvd’s etc). The remaining 25% comes from grants and awards for specific projects. Having variety in our income streams and being only partially dependent on grants means that we are sustainable, but we do rely on our fundraising income to run the website, UK wide activities and to enable us to be responsive to a need.
