How much we spent in 2016/17

We’re very grateful to everyone who supports us financially and we want you to feel confident that we’re spending your donations wisely. That’s why we’re committed to being open about how we're funded and managed.

In 2016/17 we spent a total of £1.45 million using money raised during this financial year.

We spent £1,459,066 on a range of events and programmes which provided 78,259 disabled people with the opportunity to lead fitter, more active lives.

We invested £179,745 in fundraising.  This included organising a range of events including the Mix96 Tour de Vale Bike Ride, obtaining places in a range of marathons and races as well as marketing to engage new supporters to make sure we can continue to fund our work in the future. 

We raised £5.49 for every £1 we invested in fundraising.

We spend £42,701 on governance.  This ensures that we are a well-run and accountable organisation.  This includes external audit costs, information governance (e.g. data protection), quality assurance (services quality and safeguarding) as well as the cost of planning and reporting.
