COMMUNITY VENTURES (MIDDLESBROUGH) LTD 

Education & Training, Relief of Poverty, Economic/community/development/employment
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • There has been reasonable growth in spending over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • There are only 4 trustees
  • 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
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
Established: 34 years
