    INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY ORGANISATION OF SUNDERLAND 

    We work with BME people in the North East of England, especially in Sunderland. We focus on those with limited access to information and support network, including migrants and refugees. We have a very good relationship and we enjoy the trust off the Eastern European community. We came to being in 2009 and have now converted to a CIO. More information including projects- icos.org.uk
    Analysis by Giving is Great

    Positives:

    • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government and there are significant future grants due to be received

    Financial issues to consider:

    • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
    Established: 4 years
