BirdLife Secretariat Finances & Annual Review



The BirdLife Secretariat had a strong growth in 2017 with total income increasing 39% to £22.3 million, compared to £16 million in 2016. The increase in income has supported growth in our conservation programmes. The Secretariat’s total expenditure however also increased, by 21% to £19.7 million in 2017, compared to £16.3 million in 2016.
After accounting for restructuring costs, the Secretariat achieved a small surplus of £22,630  on unrestricted funds. The restructuring plan implemented has helped the organization save £1.1 million against its unrestricted budgeted expenditure in 2017, and savings will continue to flow in 2018 to make BirdLife more robust against the headwinds of today’s charity sector.
