    THRIVE 

    Thrive is an award-winning organisation working in Teesside, advocating for the voice of lived experience to be included in decision-making processes.We do this through research, tailored one to one support and by taking local action: bringing together local people and institutions. We have three paid members of staff, a group of dedicated volunteers and a Board of Trustees.
    Analysis by Giving is Great

    Positives:

    • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
    • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers

    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
    • There has been a change of accounting period recently, so trends may be hard to determine
    • Spending has fallen significantly over the last 5 years relative to the previous period
    Established: 2 years
