What has happened to The Island Project?
As a not for profit company The Island Project relies on consistent payment from placing authorities in Derby City, Derbyshire and Nottingham.
Recent changes in payment processes have caused the project to have huge cash flow issues leaving the project facing financial hardship. This has led to several staff being laid off, and inconsistent pay for staff. The plan is to raise £20,000 to help support the company through this tough period so that the farming and animal side of the company is supported and can thrive in a healthy way.
The Island Project supports some of the region’s most complex young people through animal-assisted learning and outside of the classroom-based projects. The £20k budget will be used to cover animal feeds and maintain animal welfare as well as giving the company a buffer to deal with emergencies and unforeseen financial demands.
The project hopes to achieve this target through community effort, monthly onsite meetups, an online donations shop and fundraising efforts.
