Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received backing from multiple prominent grant makers recently
  • There has been reasonable growth in spending over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • There have been no income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board is predominantly female

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Accounts have been filed late on 2 occasions over the last 5 years and the current period appears to have been extended
