  • Repairs & Maintenance – all chairs issued and adapted by YMF are fully maintained by the charity and will continue to be for as long as we have the funds to do so.
  • Where possible we refurbish and redistribute our equipment allowing our budgets to stretch further to help as many children as possible.
  • There are no running costs for the charity with the exception of website development and occasional printing materials & costs. Everything we raise goes directly to the children.
