We are committed to transparency

As a charity, ChildVision’s aim is to provide the highest quality service possible to the children who attend our campus. We use fundraising to provide and enhance services beyond the level made possible by Government funding, in order to add to the general well-being of those we serve.
The services provided by ChildVision cannot be judged in financial terms alone. The true measure of such services can be gauged in human terms – the extent to which they contribute to the wellbeing of those whom we serve. Human qualities such as happiness, contentment, security, future prospects, enablement, respect and dignity are not reflected in financial reports and statements.

Each year our accounts are audited by Crowe Howarth to ensure accuracy and consistency in our reporting. Each month our finances are reviewed by our Audit Committee. The HSE and HIQUA inspect our Finance & Administration, Child Protection Policy, Risk Management and Security on an annual basis.

How are we funded

ChildVision’s income comes from three principal sources, the Health Service Authority (HSE), the Department of Education & Skills and through Corporates, Trusts and Foundations, and public and private donations.

We also continue to expand and promote our social enterprise ventures on campus. These include equine therapeutic riding, a garden centre, petting zoo, charity shop and coffee shop, all open to the public, 7 days a week.

We strive to make a lasting impact with these funds, ensuring each child benefits to maximum capacity while minimizing our overheads.
