CYLCH MEITHRIN TRELAI 

Provide a childcare facility to the children of Ely and surrounding areas.
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
  • This charity is based in an area of extremely high deprivation

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • There are only 3 trustees
  • 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
  • Latest accounts are overdue for filing
Established: 27 years
