DURHAM AREA DISABLED LEISURE GROUP 

DADLG provides a wide range of sports, social and leisure opportunities for children and young people with disabilities and their families. We aim to enable families to engage in events and activities as a family with siblings, parents and carers, being supported to take part in new and adventurous activities as well as familiar activities.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • 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
  • The Board appears to be dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board is completely female

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Income was lower than spending in the latest year
Established: 29 years
