BELMONT COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION 

The objects are to establish and run Community Buildings and outdoor facilities for the benefit of the inhabitants of Belmont, Carrville, Gilesgate and the surrounding area.
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 including the Government
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Although this charity works with volunteers it does not have a Volunteer Management policy

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
Established: 6 years
