DARLINGTON AND DISTRICT HOSPICE MOVEMENT 

Our facilities are available free to all terminally ill patients, regardless of the nature of the disease. We are non-denominational and respect the different cultures of all. We believe that a person has the right to choose where they die - in hospital, hospice or at home. We look at the whole person and take into account their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has a robust balance sheet
  • Fundraising costs are low relative to funds raised
  • 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 gender

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • The Board has little diversity in terms of age

Financial issues to consider:

  • Liquidity appeared to be in excess of CC guidelines at the latest year end
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
Established: 37 years
