Our income in 2015 was £29.1 million.

Over 98% of our expenditure was on charitable activities. Our fundraising costs for voluntary income are very low because we do not raise funds from the public directly. In accordance with our reserves policy, we have a small increase in unrestricted general funds.

In accordance with charity law, HelpAge's trustees have an obligation to maximise resources for the charity and, in turn, expenditure on activities that benefit the millions of poor older people around the world.
