NORTHUMBERLAND PRIDE 

Northumberland Pride is a county wide organisation that to raises awareness of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) culture and heritage. We do this by promoting equality and diversity for the elimination of discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • There has been strong growth in spending since inception
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government 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

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • One or more trustees receive payments or benefits from the charity for providing services to the charity
  • Over half the Board have joined recently

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
