Our work relies on the constant sharing of knowledge and ideas. It’s a collaborative approach that recognises people’s strengths, respects their expertise and enables them to develop a variety of innovative solutions.
The GCHQ budget is paid from a combination of the Single Intelligence Account and the National Cyber Security Programme. This also provides the funding for the other UK security and intelligence agencies, MI5 and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6).
GCHQ places great importance on having the right culture and ethos. We are very aware of the responsibility that comes with the nature of our work, and in addition to our legal accountability we also take the ethical considerations surrounding our mission seriously.
