WEST YORKSHIRE COMMUNITY CHAPLAINCY PROJECT 

WYCCP is a resettlement project, which aims to reduce re-offending and contribute to building safer communities in Leeds and across West Yorkshire. We are a through the gate project; we work with men both inside HMP Leeds and post release, and particularly with offenders serving less than twelve months who have limited access to statutory support, who tend to re-offend regularly.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • 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

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: 19 years
