Our funding comes from a variety of different sources including:

Local Council Contracts

We work in partnership with Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City Council to provide a number of trainee places for trainees within both areas.

Income from Catering Activities, bakery goods and the Fly Cup Coffee shop

The catering activities we undertake, as well as being important in developing the skills of the trainees, also provide additional income which is used to further develop and extend the services we offer.
