EMBASSY 

We take homeless people off the streets who have been assessed and referred by key workers and are committed and motivated to the challenge of getting back on track. We provide them with a room in a shared property and help them to find a job, save funds and find permanent accommodation, with aftercare. We provide them with physical, mental and spiritual care with a Christian faith-based focus.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received backing from a grant maker
  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board is completely male

Financial issues to consider:

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