It is true that we are working in 25 of the 32 boroughs, often at the request of their social services department. However, of those 25, only eight are actually supporting us financially.
Our situation, unlike our service, is not unique. All of the London-wide Aids charities are having to subsidise local provision because the boroughs can't or won't pay their proportion of the core costs of accommodation, administration and support to charity workers, which they automatically include as overheads in their own budget calculations for council staff.
