Our Funders.

We would like to express our gratitude to all the individual donors and charitable trusts that support our work. We are particularly grateful to our long-term supporters, who had the vision to see so far ahead and the belief in Transform to deliver. We can only do this work with all your support.

Our policy on working with Drug, Alcohol, Pharmaceutical or Tobacco industries.

Transform has values its independence, and we make a determined effort to avoid conflicts of interest. We do not represent any stakeholders in the drug policy arena, beyond the individuals and communities who are directly affected by drug policy failures.  For this reason, we have clear guidelines on how we manage relationships with industries that stand to make profit from drug markets of any kind. You can read our full policy here: Transform policy on working with DAPT industries

Transform’s achievements.



“The Task Force would also like to extend its appreciation to Beau Kilmer and Steve Rolles [Transform] for their counsel and advice.”

“I am grateful for the professional support that Transform Drugs provides both ad hoc and more through more formal commissioning. If Transform were not available I would struggle to continue to be an influential advocate for drug policy reform.

I am therefore happy to commend them to potential donors as a professional and knowledgeable charity.”

Arfon Jones, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales
