COETIR ANIAN 

Mission:

Restoring habitats and species, connecting people with wildlife and wild places
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years, despite a decline more recently
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government and there are significant future grants due to be received
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Although this charity works with volunteers it does not have a Volunteer Management policy
  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy
  • One or more trustees receive payments or benefits from the charity for providing services to the charity

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
Comment by the Charity:
    Asset transfer refers to transition of charity from Charitable Trust to Charitable Incorporated Organisation. Two years of operating at deficit were due to incurring project costs which were covered by subsequent grant, hence large surplus in 2019-20.
