Where your money goes
We will use this page to update our latest financial data. We could not survive without the support of the public, and we recognise the importance of transparency in maintaining that support.
Last financial year (2014/15), the Great North Air Ambulance Service had a total income of £6.157m. This can be broken down accordingly:
The charity's total expenditure for the same period (2014/15) was £4.627m. This can be broken down as follows:
Essential support services included in the chart above include the likes of fundraising and administration, without which the charity could not continue to operate the air ambulance.
The charity therefore generated a net surplus in 2014/15 of £1.5m. This equates to less than six months of our operational running costs and is held for future investment to provide a contingency fund to help us maintain our services.
The information included on this page relates only to the charity. The charity is required to prepare consolidated financial statements for audit. These financial statements include the activities of the charity and its trading subsidiary. A copy of the statutory accounts can be found at the website of the UK Charity Commission.
