    Analysis by Giving is Great


    • There has been reasonable growth in spending 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 and there are significant future grants due to be received

    Financial issues to consider:

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