Our expenditure explained
How we spent the money we received
This chart shows our spending in 2018, which was £243.9 million.
Our support costs were nine per cent and included overheads such as finance, human resources, IT, central management and governance.
This spending is essential to make sure our organisation runs efficiently and allows us to help as many people in crisis as possible.
Our charitable activities
We spent £190.6 million on our charitable activities in 2018.
In the UK, this was split into areas such as crisis response, first aid, refugee support, and supporting people between home and hospital. The remaining funds were spent on providing help overseas.
Where our funds come from
We also raise funds by providing services to support vulnerable people. This includes contracts with the NHS.
