BADEN-POWELL SCOUTS' ASSOCIATION 

All Scouting Activities
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been very successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • The charity has received backing from multiple prominent grant makers, including a Community Foundation, recently
  • The Board appears to be dynamic in terms of composition

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
  • Spending has fallen significantly over the last 5 years relative to the previous period
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
Established: 53 years
