THE ABBEYFIELD BURNHAM AND HIGHBRIDGE SOCIETY LIMITED 

SHELTERED HOUSING FOR ELDERLY PERSONS
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • There are only 3 trustees
  • The Board composition appears to be rather static and 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 4 occasions over the last 5 years and the current period appears to have been extended
