LINGFIELD LIVING LOCAL 

We run a community hub through which we offer a safe and welcoming space by hosting activities which bring together people from different cultures, ages and backgrounds who live locally.All activities are based on community consultation and we prioritise groups run by local people themselves.Example activities are music workshops, fun days, craft and cooking groups, celebrating festivals etc.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers
  • The Board appears to be dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests 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
