Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board is completely male

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
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
Established: 15 years
