THE ABBEYFIELD BARNARD CASTLE SOCIETY LIMITED 

PROVIDE SHELTERED ACCOMMODATION WITH SUPPORT FOR ELDERLY PEOPLE
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board has little diversity in terms of age

Financial issues to consider:

  • 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
