TRADE SEXUAL HEALTH 

Trade is a community-based health and wellbeing charity, based in Leicester (but operating across the Midlands), with a focus on the needs of LGBT people, people living with HIV, and those communities at highest risk of contracting HIV.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Over half the Board have joined recently

Financial issues to consider:

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