Save the Children UK expects income to fall by £67m

In a statement made to the voluntary sector publication Third Sector, it revealed that its estimated income for 2018 was £340m, down from £407m in 2017.

The charity said the reduction was due to several large multi-year projects had come to an end in 2016 and 2017. It also put the change down to the fact it withdrew from bidding for new funding from the Department for International Development (DfID), which provided more than £131m of its funding in 2017. The withdrawal came after claims emerged of sexual misconduct by senior staff, and the Charity Commission launched an inquiry into allegations made in 2012 and 2015. More
