EAST LONDON COMMUNITY BAND 

Tuition in, and performance of, music
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from several prominent grant makers recently
  • Spending has increased over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Although this charity works with volunteers it does not have a Volunteer Management policy
  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
Established: 13 years
