SORTED CHURCH 

The Charity operates under a Bishop's Mission Order as a fresh expression of church ministering in the Anglican tradition to young people in north Bradford.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • The charity has received backing from a grant maker recently
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board composition appears to be rather 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
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
