Charitable status


NATECLA was granted charitable status [^] in October 2013, allowing the organisation to claim tax relief on income and apply for grants from trusts and donors. In addition, as a registered charity, we now have more chance of gaining access to and securing funds from central government, local government, the EU and grant-making charities. 

Our charity number is 1154124.
