NORTHUMBRIAN HEDGEHOG RESCUE TRUST 

Rescues and rehabilitates sick, injured and orphaned hedgehogs. Takes in casualties from Northumberland in the North to Durham in the South.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been very successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker
  • 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 dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Although this charity works with volunteers it does not have a Volunteer Management policy
  • The Board is completely female

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 has been volatile recently but spending has been maintained
