WELLSPRINGS TOGETHER 

We are committed to: the relief of need in the community with a view to promoting social inclusion, the promotion of social cohesion by building relations and promoting mutual understanding, the promotion of equality and diversity, advancing education in the community, supporting Christian charities and charities with similar values by the provision of information, advice and support.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

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

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
