THE JEWISH VOLUNTEERING NETWORK 

PROMOTING THE VOLUNTARY SECTOR IN PARTICULAR WITHIN THE JEWISH COMMUNITY
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received backing from a grant maker
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board is predominantly 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
