Grant Making Trusts support us financially, and private Companies kindly donate services or equipment, which we normally could not afford, to help the work of Gilead. Some of these Trusts and Companies are listed (below) along with links to their websites.

Trusts and Companies who support us are also profiled on our facebook page to show our appreciation.

Allchurches Trust recently donated £1,000 to Gilead towards the complete renovation of our toilet facilities in the centre. We also received an anonymous donation of £2,500, so with an estimated bill of £6,000 we have just £2,500 until we’re ‘flush’ with funding to complete this very important work! We are so grateful to Allchurches Trust - if you could donate to this project we would welcome a gift of any amount, (even a wee one!)
