EXPIA LIMITED 

Expia works to reduce re-offending by providing real work and training opportunities for risk assessed prisoners on day release. Helping prisoners to understand the impact of their crimes on victims, families and the wider society make reparation for their crimes by volunteering and helping the local community.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been reasonable growth in spending over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • 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 gender

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
