Accounts are externally audited on an annual basis and copies are available on the Charity Commission (NI) website. We annually produce income and expenditure budgets that are managed day-to-day by the appropriate members of staff and overseen by the CEO and Treasurer, with oversight from the Board of Directors.
Love for Life holds no contracts with the Department of Education, or the Education Authority to support schools in their delivery of RSE.
Love for Life charges a booking fee and cost per-pupil for post-primary programmes. Primary school programmes are charged per delivery. Recognising that school budgets are already stretched, and not wanting finance to be an obstacle, in 2015 we made the decision to offer the most popular post-primary programme, Icebergs & Babies free of charge.

The work of Love for Life is supported through generous donations from our Supporters (individuals, groups/organisations, churches) and Charitable Trusts and Grants.
Public Health Agency (PHA)

Our programmes were designed based on the specification set by PHA and approved for use prior to commencement. We submit quarterly monitoring reports and an annual report. PHA conduct regular performance reviews.
