Our latest annual report and annual review

How we spend money

We spend the majority of our income on development projects and emergency relief. The above graphic summarises our spending in 2019/20.

Where our money comes from

Age International receives grants and donations from UK individuals, trusts, statutory bodies, Age UK, the UK Government and businesses. The above graphic illustrates our total income for the 2019/20 financial year.

How we protect your donations from corruption

Age International has rigorous monitoring and evaluation processes in place on a number of different levels.

  1. We have auditors to check our accounts at the end of every financial year. Download a copy of our Annual Report, at the top of this page, to see these audits in full.
  2. Our country offices and programme staff regularly assess programmes, ensuring that activities are relevant and sustainable and that money is being spent for its stated purpose.
  3. At a local level, we set up Older Citizen’s Monitoring Groups – groups of volunteers who have been trained to monitor programmes that are being delivered in their communities. They are older people themselves and they report back to programme staff if there are any problems.

Our legal name

HelpAge International UK is the registered name of the Charity, but we are publicly known as Age International. Age International is an independent charitable company limited by guarantee (registered charity number 1128267-8).
