There has been a marked improvement in financial performance across the majority of Quarriers services in 2016/17. This has been achieved by focusing on building sustainable services which align with our mission and vision and are appropriately funded. This strategy has resulted in the closure of those services which have suffered funding cuts or a lack of financial viability. As a consequence of this more robust approach to financial management, the Board was pleased to implement the Scottish Living Wage of £8.25 per hour across all staffing groups.
Our Fundraising team had another successful year, exceeding its income target of £2.6m. This money supplements our existing services and provides funding for innovative models of support.
