THE WM MORRISON DARLINGTON ENTERPRISE TRUST 

For the relief of poverty among all members of the community but in particular members who are unemployed or at risk of being unemployed or those less able than others to care for themselves. Current activities include job-search and employability support and skills development.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • 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 a Community Foundation and there are significant future grants due to be received
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender 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
  • Income has been volatile recently
Established: 14 years
