EASINGTON SOCIAL WELFARE CENTRE 

Easington Social Welfare Centre is the main community facility in the former mining settlement of Easington Colliery. As a registered Charity this building is run and managed to meets the needs of local people who have suffered much hardship since the closure of the mines in the 1990's. The centre provides a much needed resource for its community to use.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers
  • The Board appears to be 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
  • Accounts have been filed late on 3 occasions over the last 5 years and the current period appears to have been extended
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
Established: 51 years
