Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government and a Community Foundation and there are significant future grants due to be received
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Latest accounts are overdue for filing
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
Established: 21 years
