BLYTH WILDLIFE RESCUE 

THE RESCUE AND REHABILITATION OF SICK AND INJURED WILDLIFE ACROSS NORTHUMBERLAND AND NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker recently

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • There are only 4 trustees
  • The Board composition appears to be very static

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Accounts have been filed late on 2 occasions over the last 5 years and the current period appears to have been extended
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
Established: 12 years
