Practical Action is in a strong position, with diverse income streams and an innovative business model.

2017/18 saw continued growth in our charitable expenditure, up £1.8 million on the previous year to just over £30 million. Our total income for 2017/18 was £32.2 million, which is £1 million less than the previous year. However, the underlying trend remains positive (the previous year’s income included the Zayed Energy Prize and strategic partnership funding from DFID). Our operational income and expenditure were close to balanced.
