The Numbers: YHA (England and Wales)

The figures behind the charity which provides youth hostels and other accommodation across England and Wales


£50.9m - The charity's income for the year ending February 2010, compared with £49.5m in the previous year. Of this, £39.4m came from operating youth hostels

£34.6m - Unrestricted funds available to the charity. Most of this amount was made up of the value of fixed assets, chiefly freehold and leasehold property. The charity said it held very limited cash reserves and would cover short-term losses by borrowing and long-term losses by the sale of property

£120k - No employee was paid more than this

1.7m - The number of overnight stays in youth hostels over the course of the year

£4.39m - The deficit of the YHA's defined-benefit pension scheme, which closed to new members in 2002. The YHA is also a member of a multi-employer pension scheme run by the Pensions Trust.
