TEES VALLEY COMMUNITY ASSET PRESERVATION TRUST 

The Charity was established in 2015 to protect Community Centres', and other Community Assets, (that provide social benefit) from closure following local government spending cuts.Since March 2017 the Charity have been working closely with Middlesbrough Council to secure the long term sustainability of Hemlington Lake & Recreation Centre
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • 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
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
Established: 8 years
