YMCA NORTH TYNESIDE 

We're a multi-purpose venue in North Shields for use by members and the public including Gym, dance studio, Arts, Music, Sir James Knott Housing, meeting rooms
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received backing from multiple prominent grant makers, including a Community Foundation, recently
  • Spending has increased over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • This charity has substantial assets and unrestricted reserves of £7,293,053 available, equivalent to 31 months of spending and so may not be able to utilise additional funding
  • There is a pension deficit of £134,867
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
Established: 32 years
