Funders and clients

In the last financial year, CSE secured £2.72m for its activities from national and local government and associated agencies, industry and charitable sources. Some activities were grant funded, whilst others were paid as project or consultancy services. In addition, some funding came via project partners with whom we jointly developed successful funding proposals to a third party.
