BRANDON UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB 

Providing opportunities for young people to be coached, developed and play football. To encourage skills and enjoyment without the pressure of having to achieve. The emphasis is on fun rather than success in winning.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from several prominent grant makers, including a Community Foundation, recently
  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy
  • There are only 4 trustees
  • Over half the Board have joined recently

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Latest accounts are overdue for filing
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
Established: 16 years
