Breakout Youth operates regular youth groups and appropriate ad hoc activities in Southampton, across Hampshire, and on the Isle of Wight to provide a safe, secure and fun environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or questioning (LGBT plus) young people.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong growth in spending since inception
  • 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 age and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board is predominantly male

Financial issues to consider:

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