STREETS AHEAD FOR INFORMATION 

Streets Ahead for Information is a small, not-for-profit constituted voluntary organisation that was established in 2006 and works in one of the most deprived communities in the UK, in the densely urbanised area of Gresham and Newport, Middlesbrough, Teesside. We operate on the main thoroughfare, occupying a corner plot which has a downstairs drop-in centre and a small preloved shop
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

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

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • There are only 2 trustees

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Accounts have been filed late on 4 occasions over the last 5 years and the current period appears to have been extended
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
Established: 7 years
