Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • The charity has received modest backing from several prominent grant makers including the Government recently

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board is completely male

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Latest accounts are overdue for filing and returns have been filed late on 2 occasions over the last 2 years
Established: 4 years
