Annual Reports

World Vision UK trustees’ report and accounts

Annual Report, 2020

World Vision is driven by our desire to serve God and transform the lives of vulnerable children.

World Vision's Annual Reports provide an overview of the key successes and challenges for the year. It also includes our audited accounts, explaining where income comes from and how we used funds throughout the year.

In 2020, COVID-19 caused unprecedented challenges and disruption. But, thanks to our loyal donors and partners, we were able to reach nearly 2 million children through World Vision UK projects.

This included emergency responses in 24 countries - reaching more than 500,000 children. Some of this was as a part of the World Vision Partnership global COVID-19 response, which has reached 59 million people - 26 million of them children - to date.

Our focus on the most vulnerable children continued through this time, with more than half of our funding going to work in fragile contexts - where the most vulnerable children are found.

Overall, World Vision UK helped 3.4 million people in 36 countries over the course of 2020.

In the 2020 Annual Report, learn how we impacted lives, how we're delivering on our strategy, and our focus on impacting children's lives in the future. You'll also find a message from our CEO, Mark Sheard, our Chair of the Board, Richard Izard and our financial update.
