Our income from fees goes directly to paying staff wages.

We have a talented team of centre staff, both paid and volunteer, who work to provide a high quality service to our clients.

Surplus income is invested in providing paid work-related and research opportunities for York St John students and alumni, and for creating projects of value for citizens and communities.
