GREENHOUSE SPORTS LIMITED

It aims to develop social, thinking, emotional and physical (STEP) skills for young people in London's inner-city communities through high-quality, intensive sports programmes delivered by inspirational coaches.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received backing from multiple prominent grant makers recently
  • Spending has increased over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender

Financial issues to consider:

  • This charity has substantial assets and unrestricted reserves of £19,319,814 available, equivalent to 32 months of spending and so may not be able to utilise additional funding
  • There has been a change of accounting period recently, so trends may be hard to determine
  • Income was lower than spending in the latest year
