RAINBOW HOME (NORTH EAST ENGLAND) 

We work with LGBT asylum seekers and those who have been granted leave to remain but are unsettled. We work in the North East of England covering Newcastle upon Tyne, Sunderland, Gateshead, Durham, Stockton-On-Tees and Middlesbrough. We provide a monthly lunch club where members can meet, enjoy lunch and each others company. We work one-to-one with each member helping to provide case information.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • 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 well diversified in terms of gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
