CHURCH HOMELESS CHARITY 

To raise funds to benefit homeless people and those in housing need and in particular, those cared for by Riverside Care and Support (formerly English Churches Housing Group)
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker recently
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
