GRANGE PAVILION 

We intend to redevelop Grange Pavilion into a multifunctional accessible facility supporting Grangetown's diverse communities, providing multiple rooms for community use and for hire, a community-focused cafe, public amenities, and a community-led garden for wellbeing, play, sports, learning, growing and biodiversity, all of which are priorities identified by Grangetown communities.
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 dynamic in terms of composition
  • This charity is based in an area of high deprivation

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • 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
Established: 6 years
