COMMUNITIES TOGETHER DURHAM 

To promote the efficiency and effectiveness of Christian based charities in the furtherance of their objects or any one of them mainly but not exclusively by the provision of information, advice, support and infrastructure provision, and the relief of financial hardship either generally or individually through the provision of grants, goods or services
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker
  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age 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
