Partner and Funder Information


Donnington Doorstep is a registered charity, and we can only provide our vital, life-changing services through the generosity of a wide range of donors and funders. We want to acknowledge the contribution all our supporters make, whether it’s a pound in the donation jar in our Drop-In space, or thousands of pounds to enable us to significantly improve and develop our facilities.
