A significant proportion of our income is from supporters who sponsor children. We also receive donations and grants and we benefit from a number of large-scale corporate partnerships and long-term relationships with trusts and major donors. We aim to spend at least 80% of our income on charitable activities, but this figure varies year-on-year. Our income for the year to 30 June 2017 was £64.3 million, of which we spent 80% on charitable activities.
