MAIDSTONE MENCAP CHARITABLE TRUST LIMITED 

We provide a playschool, Junior Gateway, Holiday club and Senior Gateway club for children/adults with learning disabilities in the Maidstone area.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government and there are significant future grants due to be received
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy
  • The Board composition appears to be rather static

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
