BURNHOPE COMMUNITY CENTRE 

The Charity is now in possession of the new Burnhope community centre for the parish of Burnhope. The charity was set up to provide recreational and social activity for the wellbeing of the residents of Burhope Parish, which we now are able to do.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government
  • The Board appears to be dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • One or more trustees receive payments or benefits from the charity for providing services to the charity
  • 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
  • Spending has fallen significantly over the last 5 years relative to the previous period but has stabilised more recently
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
Established: 9 years
