Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

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 was significantly lower than spending in the latest year
Established: 4 years
