Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • 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

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • This charity is not recognised by HMRC for Gift Aid according to its latest published return
  • There are only 3 trustees

Financial issues to consider:

  • Liquidity appears to have been slender at the latest year end
  • There has been a change of accounting period recently, so trends may be hard to determine
Established: 16 years
