Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including a Community Foundation
  • The Board appears to be dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • There are 16 trustees whereas the Charities Commission recommends a maximum of 12
  • The Board has little diversity in terms of age
  • 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
Established: 23 years
