SWAN LIFELINE 

Mission:

The rescue, rehabilitation and release of swans and cygnets within 50km of our headquarters in Eton, Berkshire.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The Board appears to be 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
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
