How we raise and spend our money
We rely on donations. And we're grateful to everyone who donates money to us. It's important that our supporters know that we're spending our money wisely. That's why we want to be open about how we're funded and managed.
How we raise our money
We’re hugely grateful for the generosity of the public, companies and other funders. In 2022 - 2023, you helped us raise £42.6m. This means we can keep fighting for support for people with mental health problems.
Our money comes from lots of different places. We make sure we don't rely on one source of funding. This means we can be entirely independent.
We raised £22.8 million through sales in our shops. We used £16.5 million to cover the costs of running the shops. These costs included rent, bills and salaries.
We used the profits from our shops as unrestricted income to support our work. Unrestricted income is money we can use for any purpose.
How we spend our money
We spend 83p in every pound supporting people with mental health problems. The rest goes towards running the organisation, including generating funds and planning for the future.
Overall, we spent £56m in 2022 - 2023. This is on top of the £16.5m we spent on running 158 shops.
Of this £56m, we used £46.3m to directly support and advocate for people with mental health problems.
