How we are funded

As a charity, we rely heavily on voluntary support. Read our reports to see where our income comes from and how we spend it each year.

More than three quarters of our income comes from the generosity of individual supporters, through memberships, donations, legacies, purchase of goods from our shop and lottery tickets. 

The rest of our income comes from commercial sponsorship, trading and grants from charitable trusts and bodies such as the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Forestry Commission. 

In 2018, 80p of every pound you donated was spent on our charitable activities. We make sure every penny makes a huge difference.
