Who Funds Us

New Dawn New Day strives to deliver the greatest social impact in a sustainable and responsible way. We rely on funding from a range of sources including charitable trusts, police and probation services and local government as well as income from donations, client contributions and training events.

We currently receive funding from…

The Big Lottery Fund supports our holistic wraparound support services for women with complex needs.

Lloyds Bank Foundation’s Invest programme fund provides essential core funding to support our work.

Comic Relief’s Core Strength initiative is supporting us to become a stronger and more sustainable organisation for the future.

DNLR CRC is owned by the Reducing Reoffending Partnership. As part of the Just Women project we deliver a range of group and one to one interventions to women who are serving community sentences to help them to tackle the causes of their offending.




We work in partnership with our local Police and Crime Commissioner to divert women away from offending offering a specialist conditional caution intervention for vulnerable women.

This year we are also delighted to have been selected as one of the three charities of the year supported by Women in Philanthropy who are a group of influential and talented women from across Leicestershire and Rutland who work together to improve the lives of local people and communities.

We also proud to be working work with UAVA, a partnership of local specialist domestic and sexual violence agencies. We provide counselling for women who are victims and survivors of domestic abuse as part of a range of domestic and sexual violence support services commissioned by Leicester City and Leicestershire County Councils and the Office for the Police and Crime Commissioner.



Our Approach to Funding

We seek to secure the maximum investment in our services from a diverse range of sources to ensure that we are not over-reliant on a single source of funding.

As well as securing grants and contractual income we also receive income from our clients in the form of donations and fees for some of our services such as counselling and we also generate income through training and placement fees for students. In the last year almost 20% of our overall income was raised in this way.

How the Money is Spent

New Dawn New Day’s services are people focussed and rely on a team of staff and volunteers to work directly with our clients. Therefore the greatest portion of expenditure is on staff and volunteer costs. We have 8 full and part time paid staff, 40 volunteers and 6 Trustees. The second highest expenditure is our premises costs which include everything from rent and utilities to cleaning, repairs and maintenance. Our premises offer a range of one-to-one consultation rooms and group activity spaces as well as office space for staff and volunteers.
