THE STUART LOW TRUST 

We tackle social isolation because it shortens lives and can't be cured by medicine. We bring people together to improve health and wellbeing with award-winning activities that build confidence and enable everyone to contribute to and benefit from a friendlier and more supportive community.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been reasonable growth in spending over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government and there are significant future grants due to be received
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy
  • Over half the Board have joined recently

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
Established: 20 years
