EBCHESTER BOATHOUSE DEVELOPMENT PARTNERSHIP 

Provides facilities for healthy recreation and education, particularly but not exclusively for water based activities
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy
  • The Board is completely male
  • The Board composition appears to be rather static

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Latest accounts are overdue for filing
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
Established: 7 years
