CAMMS MEALS ON WHEELS LIMITED 

Provision of a delivered hot lunchtime meal to the elderly or infirm in Cambridgeshire who are unable to prepare meals for themselves. With each and every visit the deliverers have a duty to check with the clients that all is well and if necessary report any concerns to the CAMMs Meals on Wheels Ltd Office for further action to be taken.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker
  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy
  • The Board composition appears to be rather static

Financial issues to consider:

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