THE SPACE @ FIELD LANE GROUP 

The Group was formed to take over what was a derelict building previously known as the Field Lane Community Centre, The Group raised funding in order to refurbish the facility and the building opened in September 2019 as a bright and airy community hub which now houses a variety of services, activities and a community cafe all with the aim of pursuing the objects of the charity.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • 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
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
