Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker
  • There has been strong growth in spending since inception
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • One or more trustees receive payments or benefits from the charity for providing services to the charity

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Accounts have been filed late on 2 occasions over the last 4 years and the current period appears to have been extended
  • Income has been volatile recently but spending has been maintained
