NDR-UK is currently part funded by the Scottish Government and Welsh Assembly Government and part through income generation activities such as commissions for nutrition and diet resources and part self-financing through the sales of nutrition and diet resources. NDR-UK is working to develop a sustainable business model to ensure the future for quality nutrition and diet resources.
NDR-UK has approached each Home Country of the UK (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) requesting short-term investment to enable long-term sustainability of the service. The proposal was prepared by SNDRí and based on a phased approach to the Barnett Formula (a formula used by Her Majesty’s Treasury to allocate finance to Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland) with income reflective of population densities. This approach allows the Home Countries to share funding until self-sustainability is reached.
Funding has been secured from the Scottish Government and Welsh Assembly Government for 2011-2012. NDR-UK continue discussions with the Public Health Agency of Northern Ireland regarding the proposal for support of a UK-wide approach to nutrition and diet resource development and will continue to approach the relevant bodies in England to pursue support.

Income generation activities
NDR-UK welcomes invitation for commissioned pieces of work. All requests for commissions or related partnership projects should be addressed to the Chair or the Board of Directors and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. These will be considered on a case-by-case basis by NDR-UK's Board of Directors.
All NDR-UK prices are calculated to ensure that customers receive the best value possible whilst striving for a sustainable resource service, with Home Countries committed to NDR-UK's vision (Scotland and Wales) receiving a 20% discount on orders placed.
