Accountability and transparency

Efficiency, integrity and transparency are the core principles that drive our work and they also provide clarity on how we are funded and who we will take contributions from.

Our integrity and independence are not only core principles, which drive how we work, they also give clarity to how we are funded and who we will take donations from. We are working to stop a multi-billion-dollar illicit industry and operate with a tiny fraction of the funds at the disposal of the criminals. We maximise our resources to the fullest. And we are committed to ensure that the partners that make our work possible are updated on an ongoing basis on the use of their funding and the results that it yields. 

Our funding comes primarily from lotteries, foundation grants and individuals, which provide us with the necessary flexibility and independence.  

Our work requires courage to undertake and patience to deliver and we thank all the individuals and partners who support us and make our work possible. We would like to encourage interested partners to contact us here.

Our finances in 2017

In 2017all of our income was spent realising the goals of the organisation. Our income fell slightly in 2017, primarily because of a funding gap between the end of one set of grants and the start of the next, and our expenditure increased slightly. The majority of the increase came from the increased cost of carrying out our work. There was also an increase in management and administrative costs, due mainly to a planned audit and improvements in management systems.
