    Education/Training/Sport/Recreation for young people and the wider community. Samuel Montagu Youth Centre works primarily in the London Borough of Greenwich but also offers services to neighbouring boroughs.
    Analysis by Giving is Great

    Positives:

    • There has been reasonable growth in spending over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
    • 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

    Financial issues to consider:

    • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
    Established: 63 years
