EAST CLEVELAND YOUTH HOUSING TRUST 

The Trust exists to tackle youth unemployment and the lack of affordable housing. This is achieved by purchasing run-down properties, renovating and renting to vulnerable young people in housing need. The Trust offers training and apprenticeships in construction skills to young people 16-24 years old. It also offers fully supported tenancies to young people between 18 and 24 in East Cleveland.
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 a Community Foundation
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board has little diversity in terms of age

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 has been volatile recently
Established: 23 years
