YOUNG PEOPLE'S TRUST FOR THE ENVIRONMENT 

YPTE is a charity that aims to create a better future by inspiring young people to look after our world. We provide free environmental information and education services to schools and young people. These include our website, free presentations in schools, free publications for teachers, practical assistance with developing school grounds for environmental education, and awards and competitions.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker recently
  • 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 well diversified in terms of 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
