Our funding


It is now possible to sign up as members for our email list using the join panel, and to help fund TAP on the TAP website, or to join TAP without contributing funds, membership is free so noone is exclided. Some people prefer to follow on twitter and Facebook but not on email.

£10 a year a from 10,000 of our 21,400 supporters on Facebook would give us £100,000 a year to campaign with and for the poorest UK citizens 

Those of us who can afford to fund TAP are supporting those who cannot. We need to raise £50,000 a year soon.

TAP is a not for profit limited company whose objects are based on Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Article 25: Right to an adequate standard of living. 

  1. Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
  2. Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.

We have made an impact on social media and now need to sharpen up our act. We have obtained a grant of £30,000 for one year from Trust for London to install state of the art programs needed to keep membership records, email lists and to use the website, twitter and Facebook to campaign with and for citizens receiving the lowest incomes in work or unemployment. The new website is now installed. 

Our target for 16/17 is £50,000 and for two more years. 

Social media and emails will be used to keep supporters and members informed.

Therefore our budget reads as follows
