ANXIOUS MINDS 

The charity was established to raise awareness of mental health and provide early intervention and long term support for children and adults with mental health issues ,addiction and survivors of abuse for the public benefit of the people of the North East
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers and there are significant future grants due to be received
  • The Board appears to be dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board is completely male
  • 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
