Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Although this charity works with volunteers it does not have a Volunteer Management policy

Financial issues to consider:

  • Income has been volatile recently
Established: 20 years
