SPACIOUS PLACES 

We provide from Leeds Church Institute, Leeds a holistic Monday to Friday therapeutic day programme for both men and women which aims to equip them to work towards abstinence and freedom from their addiction to alcohol and or drugs.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board is completely male
  • The Board composition appears to be rather static and has little diversity in terms of age

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 3 occasions over the last 5 years and the current period appears to have been extended
  • There has been a change of accounting period recently, so trends may be hard to determine
  • Spending has fallen significantly over the last 5 years relative to the previous period
