Being responsible and trustworthy

We’re accountable to the children and communities we work with, and to the sponsors and donors who make that work possible. It’s very important to us that our finances are clear and honest, so we use internal and external auditors to monitor our finances and day-to-day management.

Globally, Plan is made up of 21 national organisations responsible for raising funds and awareness in their respective countries.

Money raised through Plan UK and the other 20 national organisations is allocated by Plan’s programmes in 50 developing countries. This structure allows us to invest as much money in development projects as possible, while keeping costs low and reducing the risk of duplication.

We’re also one of the few global organisations to publish combined worldwide financial statements detailing our fundraising and spending. See Plan’s worldwide annual report and accounts.

The effectiveness of our programmes

Plan strives for effective and efficient programmes. Plan's programme accountability and learning system (PALS) is designed to guide Plan staff in their planning, monitoring and evaluation.

Our reporting includes concrete outputs and actions taken by Plan, as well as longer term changes. Most of our work is evaluated internally and externally, including young people and the other beneficiaries. In addition to project monitoring and evaluation, Plan undertakes national and thematic reviews of our programmes.

Learning organisation

We are interested in learning from our experiences. We share and replicate our successful approaches and continuously seek to improve our programmes.

Internally, Plan publishes the rules and policies governing our work. Plan UK is audited internally by BDO and externally by PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Plan adheres to international standards and quality assurance mechanisms:

Plan UK is a registered charity in the United Kingdom, number 276035 and is constituted as a company limited by guarantee, registered number 1364201.
