THE ABBEYFIELD BASILDON SOCIETY LIMITED 

Provision of accommodation, care and companionship for senior citizens in accordance with the aims and principles of The Abbeyfield Society Limited.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • There are only 4 trustees
  • 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
  • Income has been volatile recently and was significantly lower than spending in the latest year
