HOME-START MANCHESTER 

We work with families across Manchester who have at least one child under the age of 5 and are facing emotional or parenting difficulties. We recruit and train volunteers who visit the families each week to offer them emotional and practical support in their own home.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • Spending has increased over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • One or more trustees receive benefits from the charity

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
Established: 20 years
