The Project provides services for people vulnerable through mental health problems, homelessness in Hammersmith and Fulham area. The principal activity of The Project is to run a Drop-In Day Center at its operational address and to provide practical, supportive and empowering services to vulnerable people.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Over half the Board have joined recently

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
