Founded in 1989 Magic Me continues to grow in size and reach. Magic Me is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. Directors of the company are also Trustees of the charity; they receive no payment for their time, energy and expertise. Trustees are elected at the Annual General Meeting held every Autumn.
Magic Me is a lean organisation with a small core staff team. Trustees provide further essential knowledge and experience across key areas. Trustees meet as a Committee every two months, agreeing strategy and direction, and give practical hands on support between meetings. Examples include policy review, development of IT systems and leading annual staff appraisals.

Magic Me’s financial year ends on 31st March each year. Copies of our audited Annual Accounts can be viewed on the Charity Commission website.
Our activities and events are reaching more young and older people than ever before. As Magic Me grows and our work broadens, thinking and planning time becomes more important to maintain the quality and integrity of our work. Our fundraising is therefore focused not just on the immediate costs of each project, but also the vital background work and infrastructure that underpin each successful workshop.
All our staff are directly involved in running our activities, working with young and older people, managing our team of volunteers and liaising with project schools and other partners.
Funds come from a wide range of sources across the public, private and voluntary sectors, including trusts, foundations and individual donors and supporters.
