TREASURES FOUNDATION 

Treasures Foundation operates a home for women who have recently been released from prison. We support the women through regular group and one to one meetings which cover practical support and signposting to other services. We support recovery work in the community.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government and there are significant future grants due to be received
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
