Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • Spending has increased over the last 3 years relative to the previous period
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • There has been a change of accounting period recently, so trends may be hard to determine
  • On several occasions in recent years income has been less than spending
Established: 34 years
