    Analysis by Giving is Great

    Positives:

    • The charity has received backing from several prominent grant makers recently
    • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years

    Financial issues to consider:

    • This Charity has changed registration and some of the financial and donation history pertains to the previous entity
    • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
    • Accounts have been filed late on 2 occasions over the last 5 years and the current period appears to have been extended
    • There has been a change of accounting period recently, so trends may be hard to determine
