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.
