As a charity, the initial funding for the Centre for Community-Driven Research came from the founders who supported the first two years of operations.
Since those early years, CCDR have been very fortunate to receive generous donations from people in the community who support our work. An additional income stream has been through charity and private sector contracts delivering community engagement programs and conducting independent research projects.
We do not currently receive any government funding.
How we decide where funding comes from
CCDR only accept sponsorships and contracts on the conditions that:
i. Patient’s needs and priorities are respected
ii. Our independence is maintained
