IHRB is registered as a charity with the Charity Commission in England and Wales and relies on funding from a range of sources to implement its work.

IHRB accepts funding from governments, civil society and business (our three core constituencies), but is devoted to ensuring this is objectively procured to always ensure IHRB’s independence and impartiality. IHRB undertakes advisory work with governments and inter-governmental bodies on a contractual basis. Funding from businesses is only accepted as core funding with no conditions attached. IHRB does not provide specific paid-for services or consulting to any business other than for human rights training.

IHRB’s total operating budget for 2015 was £2.57 million with a balance of 65% of contributions coming from governments, 18% from foundations and 17% from business.
