Funding & Finance

Back

Every year, Survivors Manchester supports over 900 male survivors, receiving approx 2 brand new requests for support every single day of the year – that’s over 700 men that access our support that we have never met before. Year on year, more and more people need our help and that means as a charity, we need to constantly grow to meet that demand on our services.

As a charity, our service need to remain free at the point of access and so we have to work hard to generate the £850,000 of funds that we need to ensure we can pay for our staff, building, utilities, insurance, equipment… all sorts.

Annual Accounts

As a charity, we are transparent with our financial activities, that’s both what money we have coming in and what we’re spending and on what, after all it is so often public money that we are spending – whether that is through a government grant or money that someone has generated through fundraising activities. We have a commitment to ensuring that everything we spend is value for money and that we are spending wisely.

To give you an idea of how much it costs to run Survivors Manchester, we have broken our summary costs down below:

Workforce

The workforce at Survivors Manchester includes those tasked with the governance, management, supervision, service delivery, maintenance and administration of the organisation.

The cost of this is £600,500.00

Central

To deliver services, we have an office building (office, counselling rooms, group space), utilities, equipment, comms (tel, WiFi)  insurance, memberships, licences, etc.

The cost of this is £150,000.00

Project

Survivors Manchester works in conjunction with different organisations, commissions different consultants to work on various projects, all that will support us to meet our charitable objectives.

The cost of this is £100,000.00

We are required by law to submit our accounts every year to both Companies House and the Charity Commission for England and Wales, which are checked by an independent accountant and ratified by our Trustees at an Annual General Meeting. All our accounts are public record and can be obtained by clicking here.

We also produce an annual report which not only includes our financial statement, but also a more detailed account of what we have been doing in that particular financial year. You can see our latest Annual Report below:

Funders

Since we opened the doors, we have been generously supported by a number of funders, from local NHS to national grant givers and government funds. Every penny we spend from funders is under ‘restriction’ and can only be spent on the items we detail in the grant application or in the contract and agreement.

Our key funders include Greater Manchester Combined Authority, Lloyds Bank Foundation, NHS England, Manchester Health Care Commissioning, Ministry of Justice, and Zurich Community Trust.

It’s Over To You

You may be sat there thinking “i’d really like to help” or maybe even “i know what i can do”… fantastic now all you need to do is get in touch. It doesn’t matter if your thoughts on how you can help aren’t listed, we are always more than happy to discuss your ideas with you.

So if you think you can offer any help with offers of rooms, equipment, time, your own skills and expertise, financial assistance, or even just a small donation, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@survivorsmanchester.org.uk (please leave the automatic title in the subject line).

Remember…
Every penny you can give us counts.
Every bit of time you can offer helps us continue our work.
Every message of support spurs us on further.

Thank you so much from all of us at Survivors Manchester: from myself, my trustees and most importantly from my fellow survivors for taking the time to look at the site, for thinking about supporting us and please, tell others that we’re here… you may just help a guy break the silence and that is the biggest gift you could give.
