Horizons does not receive any funding from government, local authority or Local Education Authorities, so we rely entirely on public generosity and having to compete for grants from charitable trusts.

We also rely on our fantastic team of Volunteers to help us run our organisation and look after the children out on the water. There are also lots of ways you can help us:
