Our Finance & Governance

Children in Crossfire are committed to being fully transparent and accountable. It’s important that people understand how we work and how we operate our finances.

84p in every £1 donated by our donors is spent on the organisation’s direct charitable activities.

Our accounts are prepared independently by our auditors in accordance with the Statement of Recommended Practice for charities (SORP). Our annual report and audited accounts are available below.

We welcome greater public scrutiny of the sector through such bodies as the Charity Commission and Charities Regulator and actively promote a transparent and accountable approach to everything we do. We comply fully with the NGO Code of Corporate Governance co-authored by Dóchas.

Since Children in Crossfire was founded in 1996, all donations have impacted positively on the lives of many millions of children throughout the world who suffer from the injustice of poverty. We hold all donor, volunteer and supporter information securely and confidentially.  We respect your privacy and will never share your details with any other organisation.  We hold supporter information in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
