CARE AFTER COMBAT 

The charity's objects include, but are not limited to, providing peer mentorship and group support within the Justice System for the wellbeing of former British Armed Forces personnel and their Families.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Over half the Board have joined recently

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Accounts have been filed late on 2 occasions over the last 5 years and the current period appears to have been extended
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
