Tearfund’s annual report and accounts

In a year like no other, we have seen the church rise up to meet unprecedented need in unprecedented ways.

Your incredible support in 2020/21 has made it possible for us to draw alongside millions of people facing severe challenges, and to inspire hope where hope was in short supply.

Our Annual Report below profiles an extraordinary global response in an extraordinary year – and the life-changing impact of all that your generosity has reaped in communities across the world.

Our impact

The impact you make possible

The scale of need has been huge in this past year. The pandemic has pushed millions of people back into poverty and added to existing crises caused by conflict, injustice and climate change.

We have kept our eyes fixed on Jesus and kept our focus on our four goals. These are the four key ways in which we are making an impact on poverty through our partnership with the local church and with you.

Our commitment

None of this would have been possible without you. Your generosity and commitment to our work have been astounding, especially in a year that has brought challenges for us all. We don’t take any of it for granted.

We are committed to being accountable and transparent – and our Annual Report plays an important role in that. It shows you where our funding comes from and how we put it to work – whether it's from fundraising, leaving a gift in a will or donating to our appeals. And we hope it makes clear the huge impact your gifts and prayers are having, and how grateful we are for them.
