OUT TOGETHER 

To promote social inclusion by working with people who are socially excluded on the grounds of their age and sexual orientation (in particular, elderly people who identify as LGBT plus) to relieve their needs and assist them to integrate into society, in particular by providing a networking group that encourages and enables members to participate more effectively in the wider community
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There are only 4 trustees

Financial issues to consider:

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