Analysis by Giving is Great


  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • The charity has received Government grants
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • 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
  • 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

3. OBJECTS3.1 The Objects of the RAINBOW CHORUS are:(a) To advance public education in, and appreciation of, the art of choral singing, its study, practice and performance, and to contribute to the quality and range of community events and to assist other charitable causes.(b) To promote social inclusion for the public benefit of people who are socially excluded on the grounds of their sexual orientation or gender identity. This will be achieved by relieving the isolation and needs of those people. (c) To promote equality and diversity for the public benefit by the elimination of discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity, in particular but not exclusively by raising public awareness of discrimination towards and issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender, Queer and other associated identities), and in such other ways as are exclusively charitable as the Trustees may from time to time determine.
