THRESHOLD HOUSING LINK 

Threshold Housing Link is a resettlement and supported accommodation charity providing emergency and long term supported accommodation and auxiliary services for single homeless people
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • Fundraising costs are unusually low relative to funds raised
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • This charity has substantial assets and unrestricted reserves of £1,253,043 available, equivalent to 24 months of spending and so may not be able to utilise additional funding
