NIWE EATING DISTRESS SERVICE TRADING AS EATING DISTRESS NORTH EAST 

EDNE provides support to people in the North East of England affected by eating disorders/eating distress, who use food in ways which are problematic to them. We provide a safe, non-judgemental environment in which people can begin to move beyond a concentration on their symptoms to address the underlying issues which cause them to use food/food-related behaviours to manage their situation.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • 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 dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board is predominantly female
  • 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
