STREETGAMES UK 

StreetGames harnesses the power of sport to create positive change in the lives of disadvantaged young people, their families and their communities. We help make people and communities healthier, safer and more successful by supporting organisations across the UK to deliver Doorstep Sport: making sport accessible to all young people when they want it, where they want it and how they want it.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • Fundraising costs are unusually low relative to funds raised
  • 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:

  • Unrestricted reserves appear to be dangerously low at the latest year end
