AFRICAN RAINBOW FAMILY 

African Rainbow Family is a charity that supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender intersexual and queer refugees and those seeking asylum.

We provide peer support, advocacy, advice, information and counselling.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers and there are significant future grants due to be received
  • The Board appears to be dynamic in terms of composition

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
