A CALL TO ACTION (ACTA) 

We advance, develop and foster a full understanding of the Roman Catholic faith by encouraging the discovery of people's skills, promoting knowledge and awareness through workshops, conferences, and our website. We promote dialogue within the Church in order to share spiritual insights, promote good practice and providing examples of service within the Church and wider community.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been very successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Although this charity works with volunteers it does not have a Volunteer Management policy
  • 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
  • Income has been volatile recently and was significantly lower than spending in the latest year
