Our Finances

Value for Money

As a small bespoke charity we recognise the value of every penny donated and reaffirm here our continuing commitment to keeping support costs as low as possible and maximising expenditure on charitable activities. However, we also recognise the need to invest in new activities as we grow and have made increased investments in fundraising support and our advocacy work stream over the current year. This has resulted in a small increase in our support costs of .05p for every pound raised in 2015-2016. Even with this small increase we are proud that a whole 86p of every £1 was spent on charitable activities during the year.
