Where our funding comes from and how we use it.
At Jigsaw, we believe it’s fundamentally important to be open about how we are funded and how those funds are used to support the mental health of young people across Ireland.
We categorise income and expenditure in line with the categories as per the Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP): Accounting and Reporting by Charities
2015, as issued by the Charities Commmission (for England and Wales) and the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.
As a charity seeking donations from the public, we follow the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising as set out by the ICTR (Irish Charities Tax Reform Group). You can see below where our funding came from during 2016 and how we used it to support the mental health of young people across Ireland.
To actively demonstrate openness, transparency and integrity to our beneficiaries and donors Jigsaw operates to the triple lock standards - transparent reporting, good fundraising and governance.

I felt as if I wasn’t being judged, that I could talk about what was concerning me without the fear that I would be ignored or have my trust broken.
