Funding

Thanks to Liverpool Mental Health Consortium who via Twitter have highlighted that WHISC is one of many organisations who may lose some funding next year…

Just to reassure people, WHISC IS OPEN – even if we lose the grant from Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), we have other sources of funding. At the moment, WHISC is secure until December 2018 and we continue to fundraise to ensure our services continue well into the future.

Thanks to everyone for their continued support.
