  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • There are only 3 trustees
  • The Board is completely male

Financial issues to consider:

  • Liquidity appears to have been slender at the latest year end
  • Accounts have been filed late on 2 occasions over the last 5 years and the current period appears to have been extended
  • Fundraising costs are extremely high relative to funds raised
Established: 21 years
