JEREMIAH'S JOURNEY 

WE OFFER SUPPORT AND INFORMATION TO CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED OR ARE ANTICIPATING THE DEATH OF SOMEONE SPECIAL. WE OPERATE IN PLYMOUTH AND THE SURROUNDING AREA. WE OFFER A RANGE OF AGE APPROPRIATE INTERVENTIONS DEPENDING ON INDIVIDUAL NEEDS.
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
  • 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
