Acacia Family Support - Ante and postnatal depression support services

Fundraising News


Acacia is dependent on the generous contributions of our supporters to enable us to continue to provide free services to mums and families in need.  Our funding comes from various sources and we hold several contracts with three different funders.  However, this income is not sufficient to cover all of our running costs and so fundraising is critically important to us. Below you'll see some of the many ways our wonderful supporters get involved. We are so grateful for every pound raised.  This money helps us to do what we do to ensure that no mums or dads have to suffer alone.

If you would like to know more about fundraising or would like to donate, please click on the boxes at the bottom of the page.
