ASSISTANCE SUPPORT AND SELF HELP IN SURVIVING TRAUMA 

ASSIST offers therapeutic and emotional support to individuals and their families/carers affected by Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTS is defined as an illness or disorder that is triggered by an emotionally distressing event which is outside the range of normal human experience, e.g. traffic incidents; fires; attacks: rape; and traumatic bereavement.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • There are only 4 trustees
  • The Board is completely male

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Spending is declining
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
