The Numbers: Autism Plus

The figures behind the charity that offers care and support for people with autism and related conditions

£4.4m - Autism Plus's income for the year ending 31 March 2008, compared with £4.1m the previous year

91% - The proportion of its income the charity raised from providing care. The rest came from charity shops, grants and investment income

£60k - The highest-paid employee received no more than this

£371k - Free reserves at year-end, equivalent to about five weeks' operational spending. The target is to hold free reserves of about £600,000

£3,755 - The amount of voluntary income - a tiny proportion of overall income. The charity had a negative fundraising ratio for the year because it spent more than it raised

£5.18m - Budgeted income for the year. Actual income was £4.4m. Part of the reason for the difference was the loss of five residential service users, three of whom died and two of whom moved to different areas

7% - The extra proportion of salary paid to staff by the charity in lieu of a pension, leaving them to organise their own personal pensions.
