Turning Point increased income by almost £5m last year

Total income at the health and wellbeing charity Turning Point UK increased by nearly £5m last year, new figures show.

The charity’s latest accounts, for the year to the end of March, show revenue increased to almost £133m and total spending was almost £128m.

The charity operates health and social care services in more than 300 locations across England.

Almost all of its income was from the provision of services, split roughly equally between residential and non-residential activities.

The charity supported more than 132,000 people who needed help in areas including drug and alcohol misuse, mental health, offending behaviour and unemployment issues. It also supports people with a learning disability.

The charity spent just over £93m on staff costs and employee numbers increased from 3,515 to 3,585 year on year.

Peter Hay, chair of the charity’s board, said in his foreword to the accounts that the performance reflected Turning Point’s agility and responsiveness during the pandemic.

“Financially, we are in a strong position for 2021/22 and I feel confident that we will be able to respond and adapt to what is likely to be a period of significant flux in the health and social care sector over the coming years,” he said.
