KESHET DIVERSITY UK 

KeshetUK exists so that no one should be forced to choose between their LGBT plus and Jewish identity. We engage with schools, youth and young adult organisations, synagogues, and community organisations to ensure that Jewish LGBT plus people and their families are included throughout Jewish life in the UK.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received backing from a grant maker
  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of 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
