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 National Lottery Fund

The National Lottery Fund supports the Our Place project which support women through holistic wraparound support and opportunities to volunteer and connect with others.

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 deliver this in partnership with our local Community Rehabilitation Company who are run by the Reducing Reoffending Partnership

Police and Crime Commissioner

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. The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner also fund us to lead a strategic developmental voluntary sector partnership working to transform the provision of therapeutic services for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse as part of their “VAWG No More” project funded through the Home Office.

Leicestershire and Rutland Community Foundation

This year we are also delighted to have been awarded funding from the Tampon Tax through Leicestershire and Rutland Community Foundation. This grant funds our Women’s Peer Support project, training women to provide support to others and to facilitate peer support groups.


“Reaching Out” is a project funded through the Department of Health and Social Care’s Covid19 Emergency Fund to support women whose mental health and wellbeing has been impacted by the pandemic. The fund is managed by Mind who awarded us a grant to provide additional support to women accessing our services at this time. The project is delivered by our staff and volunteer team.

Hope Project

We are also a delivery partner for the Hope Project which is a multi-agency service offering domestic violence services to women and men who present with complex needs.

Funded through the Ministry for Housing Communities and Local Government, the project is run in partnership with Turning PointWomen’s Aid Leicestershire Ltd and Panahghar and offers specialist refuge accommodation, wraparound support in the community and additional support for mental health and substance misuse.

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.

We also aim to generate income from trading activities such as selling products and services as well as raising funds from donations and fundraising events.

How the Money is Spent

New Dawn New Day’s services are people focused 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, 5 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.

Each year we submit our accounts and annual report to the Charity Commission. A copy of our annual accounts can be downloaded by visiting the Charity Commission Website.
