Our mission is always to provide the individual support and help that people need to restart their lives once more. And we can only do that with the help of both organisations and individuals, who see the value of the work we do. Your support, whether it be financial or material, is much appreciated.
Our programme partners are top level professional and corporate supporters who provide funding for programmes. They are offered fantastic opportunities in return, including yacht and media branding, programme involvement, corporate sail and land team building and/or hospitality packages tailored to different requests. Above all they know that they are helping to change lives forever.
Along with the following grant awarding organisations for their funding which enables our programmes to run:
J F Brignall Charitable Trust, Hawerby Trust, Fisheries and Philanthropy Grants Trusts
Generous in-kind support provides vital professional services, without which the charity would not be able to continue with its work. In return they are offered yacht branding and the possibility of joining us on sailing events. We thank our current in-kind corporate supporters:

Last year (2019) saw the fifth CatZero Cycle Challenge take place which saw 13 riders taking to the saddle to complete the 270 mile full coast to coast, riding from Hornsea to Stockport in three days.
Director of Sailing, Danny Watson, who leads the event every year was delighted to reveal that the 2019 Cycle Challenge raised £13,000 – bringing the total raised by cycling events over the past five years to £91,000! All money raised goes back into the charity to directly benefit local people.
