Ethical travel charity Tourism Concern shuts

Advert Travel Gazette

After being founded in London in 1988, Tourism Concern became a charitable membership organisation in 1989

A BRITISH ‘ethical travel charity’ Tourism Concern has closed down after three decades after running out of funds to continue its campaign and research work, reports the Guardian.

The non-profit organisation had battled for financial survival for many years, with annual reports describing how it had “always struggled to generate a core income.”

“Funding from charitable foundations, which sustained us in the past, is no longer available. The trustees were determined that Tourism Concern should not become a zombie charity, raising money simply to exist,” the charity said in a statement.
