As a registered charity we are eligible to apply to Scottish Government Violence Against Women designated funding and charitable grant-making trusts to pay our running costs and salaries. This income is not guaranteed and doesn’t cover the full range of support and services needed across Lanarkshire.
Fundraisers and individual donations make a massive difference to our work, and help not only to sustain vital services, but also to raise awareness of the impact of sexual violence and how we can help. We are incredibly grateful to so many people every year whose generosity and imagination do so much to help LRCC and the people we support.
Local Giving Whether you want to give us a one-off donation or get sponsored to run a 5k to support our work, you can be assured that every penny helps us deliver our valued service supporting women and girls through difficult times. And adding Gift Aid to your donations boosts the effects of everything you so generously provide by a further 25% at no extra cost to you.

It costs over £300,000 per year to run our charity and deliver essential services, and so financial support is crucial to our growth and sustainability. We continue to work very hard at securing enough funds to sustain and develop our work through the submission of funding applications to various trusts and charities, fundraising and encouraging donations.
We would like to acknowledge current financial support provided by our main funder the Scottish Government. Other recent funders supporting our work are: SCVO Third Sector Resilience Fund, South Lanarkshire Council, The Robertson Trust, North Lanarkshire Council, and the many individuals who have raised funds and made donations. We would also like to acknowledge support from some local businesses who provide donations and prizes for fundraising activities, to help LRCC deliver its services to the women of Lanarkshire.
