How we can do what we do


Clients are expected to pay modest, affordable sums towards a service they use. This helps to cover our running costs.  We rely largely on fundraising events and private donations to keep our services going.

Currently we charge:

Shopping trip in a minibus - £3.00.

A hot two course lunch - £4.00.

Gardening: clearing an overgrown garden to make it safe to use -  £10 an hour.

We are fortunate to be partially supported by the Borough of Barnet, as part of the new Neighbourhood Services model, which is trying to ensure that day opportunities reach as many elderly people in the Borough as possible. We are also supported by local churches and other local organisations, but rely on donations from individuals and local groups to maintain our variety of services. We also rely on our own fundraising events.
