It is thanks to the generosity of our supporters that we can carry out our vital work in supporting children and young people. So we thought you might like some facts and figures about us and our work. This issue we’re focusing on a very important subject – money.

These graphs give you a snapshot of our current financial picture and demonstrate that we work hard to spend our income in the most prudent and effective way, according to best practice as regulated by the Charity Commission.

Thank you for supporting us

We had a good year in 2012/13, despite the difficult economic times and sweeping changes to children’s services in local authorities.

We achieved an increase in our income through work commissioned by local authorities, which meant we could increase expenditure on childcare and protection by 10% in the year to £28.1m.

Overall, our final results show that our operating position was break-even in the last financial year, in line with our budget and plans. Again, we couldn’t have done it without the generosity of our fantastic supporters – whether you volunteer with us, organise Christingles, donate money or stock, the list goes on. Thank you for supporting us. Your generosity has helped to change lives.
