MID CHESHIRE MIND 

We have a range of groups where members can share their skills and knowledge and give support to each other.We have a donation station, a weekly women's and a fortnightly men's group; healthy cooking and eating, art and crafts and poetry groups and regular trips out. Wherever possible groups are led by the members.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been reasonable growth in spending over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • 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

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • There are only 4 trustees
  • Over half the Board have joined recently

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 was lower than spending in the latest year
