LEEDS CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY TRUST 

Our Vision is to enable, encourage and support individuals, groups and projects that are seeking to make a positive difference in Leeds.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • Spending has increased over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • 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

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • There are only 3 trustees

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
