Year Ended 31 October 2015
Peter Tatchell Foundation
Net Deficit (£6,731)
Most of our regular income is small donations from individual well-wishers. A small proportion comes from our human rights lectures and best practice advice. We receive no grants from central or local government. We depend on grassroots supporters.
Our average regular donations are around £50,000 to £60,000 a year. In the year ending 31 October 2015, we received an exceptional, one-off series of bequests which pushed our total income for the year to just over £88,000.
Given the scale and reach of our human rights work, we have very low overheads. Many of our resources involve donations in kind from supporters, such as office equipment, leaflets, adverts and venues.
Our income in 2014-15 was mostly expended on advice, casework, education in human rights, advocacy and awareness raising about human rights values and laws.
Key UK human rights issues we worked on include: equal marriage, anti-Muslim prejudice, asylum support, equal civil partnerships, Commonwealth games, sex & relationship education in schools, restrictions on gay blood donors, hate preachers and homophobic discrimination.
The focus of our international human rights work included: the Commonwealth, Balochistan, Palestine-Israel, Uganda, Brunei, West Papua, Nigeria, Pakistan, India, Iran, Egypt and Russia.
Sincere thanks to all our donors for making our human rights work possible.
