    Analysis by Giving is Great

    Positives:

    • 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

    Financial issues to consider:

    • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
    • Spending has fallen significantly over the last 5 years relative to the previous period
    • Income has been volatile recently and was substantially in excess of spending in the latest year
    Established: 9 years
