Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • The Board appears to be dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board is predominantly male

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Latest accounts are overdue for filing
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
Established: 42 years
