Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received backing from several prominent grant makers recently
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • One or more trustees receive payments or benefits from the charity for providing services to the charity

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
Established: 7 years
