This news post is over 8 years old

Aid charity Save the Children International saw its income soar last year to more than double, according to its annual accounts.

Income for the year ending December 2013 totalled £548 million up from £212m the previous year.

The majority of its income is voluntary income received directly from its member organisations. The United States contributed the largest amount, £228m, followed by the UK at £143m.

Total expenditure was £540m as the international organisation responded for the first time to a natural disaster by providing aid to the people affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

The report said: “Following two years dominated by transitions, 2013 was the first year that enables the true scale of operations of Save the Children International to be clearly seen.”

One unnamed member of staff earned £244,000 with the accounts showing the organisation employed 11,061 full-time employees.

The charity has 30 members in different countries all of which are co-ordinated from the UK.

It began to take all its offices aboard under the Save the Children International umbrella in 2011, a transition which is now nearly complete.
