Is suPPort a charity ?

In order to do unbiased scientific research and make it available, it takes a lot of time and effort, we are not funded by anyone nor are we a charity with all the red tape that this entails and we do not receive any donations. In fact, in order to be truly independent it is best not to receive any donations and/or funding so that we are not indebted to anyone. We are therefore completely self-funding and in order to provide and keep up the level of information that we want to provide and keep people updated with it, we need a member's register so that we can contact everyone and also so that we know how many people are interested in what we are doing. Our fee of £30.00 is a very nominal registration fee for a year. We pitched it at this level as we thought most people should be able to afford £2.50 per month. If however, you do have a serious financial problem please do e-mail us and we can see whether we can provide a solution.

We feel that the work that we are doing is extremely important and needs to be continued, unless it is self-financing it will not be sustainable. Please note that of course every other health service is also paid for, even if it is paid for by the NHS it is still funded by us the taxpayer.

We work closely with a number of charitable organisations, including in particular Cancer P Prevent. For more information about this charity, please click here.

Please note that we are TOTALLY INDEPENDENT of any financial or vested interest. We tell you the truth as we know it based on the best available information mostly the peer-reviewed scientific evidence, we say this because there is mounting concern that certain charities and other support bodies may be fronting for pharmaceutical companies or may be in receipt of donations from vested interest groups.
