Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy

Financial issues to consider:

  • Latest accounts are overdue for filing
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
Established: 50 years
