The war in Ukraine has underscored the devastating impact of dirty money on peoples’ lives. Help us stop the corrupt hiding it in the UK.

by Transparency International UK in London, Greater London, United Kingdom

Our investigations have already exposed £1.5 billion of UK property bought with dirty money by Russian oligarchs and those accused of corruption. This is just the tip of the iceberg. 

It’s time to stop the UK being a safe haven for the corrupt. Help Transparency International UK push through quick action and close the loopholes that allow so much dirty money into the UK.

The war in Ukraine has shone a spotlight on the deadly consequences of ignoring the UK’s vast dirty money trail. For decades, oligarchs and Russia’s corrupt have all too easily used the UK to flout the law, laundering money stolen from the Russian people.  

Our investigations have already identified £1.5 billion worth of property bought by Russians accused of corruption or with links to the Kremlin. Meanwhile, our research has shown how dirty money has spread through the British economy. Corrupt people invest their illicit wealth in high end UK property, spend it on luxury goods and services and send their children to the UK’s top public schools.  

Our findings are undoubtedly just the tip of the iceberg. Yet despite this evidence, our government has been slow to push through the necessary laws to put a stop to this. 

With your help we can expose and stop illicit finance coming to the UK and hold the crooks and those helping them launder it to account.  

Your donation will:

  • Support our investigations to reveal who else is funnelling money through the UK and how.
  • Help us develop effective solutions to influence the UK government.
  • With the world watching, make an irrefutable case to the UK government for speedy and watertight legislation to stop the UK system aiding not just  Russia’s corrupt elite but other corrupt figures in authoritarian regimes around the world which threaten the rule of law, democracy and peoples’ lives.
  • Keep up the pressure for change. 

Our work was key in passing the UK’s first Bribery Act in 2010, the UK’s first anti-corruption strategy in 2017. We are Britain’s leading independent voice on anti-corruption.

Transparency International UK is Britain’s leading independent anti-corruption organisation. Our vision is a world where people’s lives, government, business and society are free from corruption, where we can trust the integrity of those in authority and in business and where there is no impunity for the corrupt at home or abroad. 

Our work was key to the passing of the UK’s first Bribery Act in 2010 and the UK’s first UK anti-corruption strategy in 2017. More recently we successfully campaigned for transparency over the shell companies that hide dirty money in UK property. 

Thank you for your support. We cannot do this important work without you.

As a charity, donor support has enabled our ground-breaking research, campaigns and work with governments to change the systems that have enabled corruption to take root and hold those responsible to account.
