Thank you for taking time to pick up our Impact/Annual Report for the

year ended 31 March 2019. We hope that you find this information useful,

in terms of what our charity does and how it serves our community.

It has been an exciting year, with many changes and challenges, but

we have seen growth and positive change in the areas we have focused

on. Club 365 has been an encouraging initiative for us as well as making

a huge difference to those who access the provision. Additionally,

relaunches such as girl’s group, toddlers etc have shown demand in the

area for this type of work. The following report highlights some of the

work we do - but not all can be mentioned in one report.

Have a read and please do get in touch with us if we can give you any

further information.

Clare McCormack

Project Manager, MADE4U IN ML2

Introduction from the Board

MADE4U IN ML2 is about people – people coming together to support, help and encourage each

other – and the difference that can make to people’s lives.

Over the 12 months ending 31st March 2019, I have had the privilege of working with volunteers

and staff and individuals of all ages involved in our groups.

Over the 13 years now since MADE4U started operation from a portacabin, the commitment and

enthusiasm of many continues to humble and inspire.

The 12 months, covered by this report, were not easy, the second half especially, when our

project manager was absent with serious illness and some of the board had stepped down.

Indviduals and groups showed resilience and understanding that has enabled us to get through

this challenge. Difficult decisions had to be made to cut costs but also safeguard our priorities

for young people and mental health issues. We recognise that further changes need to be

made, which may involve a review of our commitment to the premises.

We have further hard choices to make but hope that you will be both encouraged and challenged

by what you read here – and by your support and prayers, help continue to make a difference

for good for people in our community.

Iain Murdoch, Chair of Trustees



& Organisational Development

Developing Values

One of MADE4U’S key pieces of work over the last year or so has been to develop

our internal organisation structures, with a view to creating an up-to-date strategy,

vision, and way forward for the organisation’s sustainability for the next ten years.

Following on from last year’s work with Diane McWilliam, The Trustees made headway

on putting our values down on paper, to really inform those who work with

us, what we stand for and what motivates us for the work that we do. The next few

pages detail our vision, values and strategic objectives for the years to come. At

the end of this financial year, The Trustees are still looking to put together a business

plan and to start to fully utilise these building blocks as a strong foundation

for the organisation.

MADE4U believes in Kingdom

Values; and in this, the

way God has us operate in

faith is often different to

how the world would have

us operate.

Change happens by working

‘with’ people and ‘for’ people;

while we want to work

alongside people, often

we are called to advocate

for those who don’t have a


True change in our area will

happen when we encourage

people to take ownership;

of the project, their lives

and their community. This

way, we will encourage and

champion change in our


Made4u believes in respecting

and celebrating

everyone’s uniqueness and

will welcome all to its activities

and programmes.

We believe that everyone

has a right to be valued,

and a responsibility to

value others, we know that

people have a unique voice

that will resound in harmony

with others around it.

Ultimately, it is our calling

to accept all; because we

have, first, been accepted

by God.

MADE4U has at its core this

value, aiming to be a beacon

of Refuge, Home, and Safety.

A core part of becoming this

in people’s lives is is listening

to stories and acting, and

encouraging and equipping

people to act for themselves.

We aim to offer opportunities

to those who most need them.

We support people who engage

with us to the best of

our ability, but know we are

not called to do everything

ourselves, but to signpost

and link people into support

structures and alongside

others who are also towers

of refuge and who can better

offer what is needed.

Social Outcomes

Another central piece of work has been to review our social outcomes - i.e. the change

we want to see in our community. It has been important for us to define these in order to:

1. work towards them in a clear and consistent manners, and 2. be able to evaluate and


review how effective we are being in making these changes.

These outcomes are available to you on pages 6-8 of this report.

| Vision |

We see a community free of

isolation, free of low selfworth

and free of lack of opportunity

for change.

Together, we see a community

full of connection, of confidence

and ready for change.

| Mission |

Motivated by our belief in

God’s love for us, it is our

mission to work in the ML2

area to see people encouraged,

empowered and engaged;

making a difference

that matters

in their community.

God’s love is

the motivation

of all we

do; that this

is our foundational


If we only had

one value it would just be love; this is

primary. We believe that God’s love is

also ‘just’!

“God always takes his stand unconditionally

and passionately… against the

lofty and behalf of the lowly; against

those who enjoy right and privilege

and on behalf of those who are denied

and deprived of it.” (Barth)

‘Just’ LOVE is an encouragement to

and from all who with with and alongside

us in Christian community, to

walk in unity and love.

Our bottom

line is that

we believe

that there is

hope for all

regardless of

their oppression;

mental health, physical poverty, or

isolation. This is hope which spans both

community and individuals.

We will identify potential in all we work

with, and in the community we are placed

in, searching out hope where it is sometimes


We will recognise and build on assets

in our community and in those we work

with, and also identify needs and help

people address them

Next Steps

The Trustees have recognised the need to develop governance including further board

recruitment and structural change in line with our priorities as well as reducing costs for

use of premises. We also recognise that we need to further diversify our funding portfolio

and diversify our income in order to mitigate issues with funding cuts in our current climate.

This will involve approaching Trustes, fundraising and agreeing corporate support,

some of which has already been set in motion.

Our Zumbatonic group runs for primary school aged kids

throughout term-time and is led by our instructor Lynsey.

The group allows kids to get fit, stay healthy and enjoy the

dance activity with their friends.

31 active sessions




Up until June 2018, this group was led by Susan Macfarlane

in Cambusnethan Primary under MADE4U’s banner. The group

was supported by key volunteers by Cambusnethan North

Church and until that point had worked with a core group of

young people for a number of years until they were ready to

move to secondary school. The group looked at Bible themes

and faith-filled living.

Our football group continues to attract high numbers, often

averaging around 40-50 per night, and attracting 80 different

individuals throughout the year. The sessions take place

weekly, with our two coaches, Dougie and Ross taking the

lead on providing activities, helping attendees improve skills

and ensuring everyone can get involved and keep fit. There

are many ways we would like to develop this group, as it remains

one of our largest expenditures in terms of activities.

Weekly during term time


In the past number of years the group has benefitted from

a steady growth in numbers and interest from individual

taking on placements with this group as a focus. As such

the group have taken part in crafting, cooking, informtion

and wellbeing sessions.

In 2018, the group relaunched, breaking into two groups (P5-P7,

S1+) in order to increase retention of the older group, and to tailor

activities to each age. In this current year, this has been very

successful with new individuals attending

and increased numbers.


Toddlers’ Group

Our Parent and Toddlers’ group has long been a staple of our

MADE4U provision. In the last number of years, we have seen

numbers and ages of those who attend change, mostly due to

the Scottish Government’s policy of now providing preschool

children with free nursery places. This led to the group

taking a short break beween July - December 2018 with a

view to relaunch. We are pleased to say that the group was

relaunched by two mum-volunteers, with the support of

Adele. The group is now going from strength to strength -

raising much of its own funds, contributing to centre vision

and strategy, and most importantly, reaching many more

children and their guardians.

“Tots of Fun @ ML2” have diversified the programme,

grown the numbers attending, have organised trips and aactivities themselves, and have

started to also offer Messy Play activities to the children and their older siblings outside

term-time. We’re so pleased with what is happening with this group and are excited to

cheer them on in all that’s to come.

Holiday Club

Our Sahara Survivors! Holiday Club was a lot of

fun. Overall, we welcomed almost 70 children to our

activities during the week, reached an average of 60

per day and operated with over 20 volunteers!

Each day we had the kids from 10-2, and during that

time we kept them busy with games, crafts, bible stories, songs and crazy dances, and

lots of team competitions - many of which resulted in pies to the face for team members

and a daily gunging for the losing leader.

Holiday Club has grown

to be one of our most

successful yearly

events, and the one most

anticipated by parents and

children alike.


Club 365

Club365, a first of its kind across the UK,

is for primary pupils who are entitled to

free school meals and aims to tackle

weekend and holiday hunger.

“My kids love coming. They

are always excited thinking

obout what they are gonna do

on the day”

We believe that long term, such provision should not be required, but in an age

where many children go to bed hungry and cannot eat during school holidays

and weekends, we have to start somewhere in dealing with the problem in a constructive


MADE4U IN ML2 brought an important third-sector presence to the Club365

provision in North Lanarkshire throughout Summer 2018, and beyond until the

end of March 2019.

Our own objectives for change during the programming:

1. Reduce poverty and distress.

2. Develop confidence in children attending

3. Create a space for children to think about future careers

and life opportunities

4. Increase employability and skills in the local community

5. Reduce isolation by increasing network of support

To achieve these we organised a wide range of educational and fun activities

that created an enjoyable and empowering experience to children attending.

“I loved the mindfulness

session. I made a mind

jar at home. It was great

to show it to my parents”


“Every single day was a learning

day. I loved it!”



Outdoors/Healthy Life

Thinking about future

Arts & Crafts


Increased connection

External facilitators

“He spoke in front of everyone.

Even praised others for being

there and talked nicely about his

brother. I’m proud”


We identified the need to give the children opportunties to talk about their futures, dreams and

goals. Many children and young people expressed various levels of worries about their mid-tolong

term futures and shared anxieties or worries about this.

In response, we invited organisations such as St. Andrews Hospice to organise a World of

Work talk and the Fire Services delivered a session too. With these visits, children gained

knowledge and perspective about different lifestyles and had new ideas about places they

might consider building a career in the future..


To support the children to develop their confidence we created a safe space where they were

able to express themselves. We allowed them to take part on the decision making, for example

choosing games or shaping entire sessions based on interests or passions.

We saw the children: making new friends; proposing activities and sessions; public speaking

with confidence; sharing feelings and throughts at the end of each day; singing and performing

in front of each other; and supporting each other to finish or improve activties.


Reducing poverty and distress is one of the main objectives of Club365; providing healthy, hot

and free lunches drastically reduces food poverty and improves attainment. This has a direct

impact on wellbeing and stress level; of both children and their families. Most of the parents

highlighted the importance of their children being fed, as well as how beneficial it was for them

to have a safe space.

MADE4U in ML2 looked to maximize the interest in healthy food by providing talks about healthy

lifestyles, making smoothies with the children and explaining different ways to eat healthy on a


Progression Routes


Club 365 has also been a way for us to meet our goals of providing new opportunities

to local people, especially young people, to develop themselves and build a new or

stronger career in community development and youth work. Even if they are not

chosing to pursue a career in this field, we have been able to help build confidence,

team work skills, and invest in indviduals’ leadership skills.

For this project, MADE4U recruited some existing volunteers and/or those with

existing experience with youth and children’s work to work as sessional workers in

delivering the Club365 programme. These individuals were able to work alongside

youth and community workers with greater experience. To make sure that the

experience was as educational as possible for the sessional members, they were

included in all the stages of the project, from planning to evaluating.

The aim was to give opportunities to those

who were new to youth work; enabling them

to learn and meet professionals from a career

they might pursue. To continue with this

approach, we invited local organisations

to deliver sessions which increased the

staff members’ knowledge and contact with

different projects working in their community,

as well as similar networks for the children

and families. Beyond that, we were able to

support another Club365 location, delivered

by Social Track; providing one of our staff

members to bolster the work there.

Planning meeting at MADE4U office

“It complemented things

I was doing while

volunteering. Putting

all these skills in a CV is

really helpful”

“Club365 helped my

employability through the

new skills I gained. Like

communicating with the kids”

All the staff members expressed that their confidence, skills and employability

prospectives had increased massively by taking part in Club365. The coordinating

team were able to identify some areas that needed improvement and provide

support or short training.


Valuing & Supporting


We are hugely privileged to have such

an amazing team of volunteers serving and getting involved in the organisation.

This ranges from The Trustees, those who assist and run groups and activities,

to those who help out occasionally, perhaps once per year or so at fundraising

events, holiday clubs, etc. The work we do would not be possible without these



To put it quite simply - we have an AWESOME team of

young volunteers helping out with our projects. They

have tirelessly helped with holiday clubs, afterschool

club, setting up around the centre, and more recently,

have started to assist in our Club365 provision.

This team of young volunteers, S1+ are learning to lead

activities, set up for sessions and have contributed valuable

energy and insights to our provision. We hope to

develop the work with this group of young people, further

supporting them in their leadership abilities and their

potential to change the communities in which they live.


In 2018, we worked towards re-accreditation of our volunteer friendly award. This

involved looking at our volunteer recruitment policies, reviewing how we celebrate

volunteers and ensuring that our support of those who come to work with

us is at an excellent standard. We were pleased to accept our Volunteer Friendly

award on the 7th June (pictured above with Provost Jean Jones).


“Get Connected”Activities

Community Lunch

Our community lunch runs once per week on a Tuesday. Members of different

groups from across the centre, as well as those coming in from the

community, join us for soup & sandwich and a blether. The space is vital

for those who are isolated in the community, who want to get connected to

our other groups and for those who just want a simple, healthy & cheap hot


Lunch Club

In partnership with North Lanarkshire Council, we are able to provide

a two course meal to elderly and vulnerable adults in the community

for a reduced price. The group size is small but there is a

feeling of community from the group and we hope to explore avenues

to increase numbers and further impact of the group.

Your Thursday Club

This group runs weekly for elderly adults in the community, attracting

between 20-30 to different events throughout theyear - more if

you count the scrumptious Christmas Lunch. The attendees benefit

from a range of different speakers throughout the year, and have had

visits from the community fire officer, police, guide dog assocation

as well as singing, film days and more.

Alternative Dance

Our All-Ability dance class is one of the most affordable in the local

area, with members and their carers only contributing £2 towards an

hour of fun and stress-free dance and healthy activity, a chance to socialise

and a cuppa as well. This group runs weekly.

Creative & Card Making

Until this year, we have run and/or supported Creative Crew on a Tuesday

and our small-but-committed card-making group on a Wedneday. Creative

Crew once again fundraised for their own blackpool trip and were even

more autonomous in how they run. Amazingly, Creative Crew outgrew the

space we were able to offer them and had already moved to South Wishaw

Parish Church. This year, they have progressed further and are looking into

becoming their own community group. We wish them the very best success

in the next season as they are no longer a MADE4U group from 31 March

2019. Our card-making group continue to meet and we look forward to developing

this group in the coming 12 months.


Core Staffing

At MADE4U, as well as the assistance of volunteers, we rely heavily on our small

but talented staff team to maintain our ethos and culture. This is important as

we: build relationships with the community; welcome and support people through

many life transitions; work with volunteers to improve their opportunities and

prospects; and strive to help people reach their full potential. Staff and volunteers

are the backbone of MADE4U’s operations in ML2.

We offer thanks and appreciation to all who have been involved in this year!


Clare McCormack

Is the project manager of MADE4U. Her background is in working

with local churches, developing and supporting grassroots projects.

Clare recognises the need for a passionate, value-driven

culture within MADE4U and spends much time supporting and developing

people to become the best they can be. It is unfortunate

that in this reporting year she has spent some time being off on

sickness leave. However, returning at the beginning of April 2019,

she is excited about seeing change and the tangible Kingdom-of-

God change and developing MADE4U to achieve that.

Bill Craig

Has been with the centre since 2006 as our Facilities and Catering

Co-ordinator, responsible for the upkeep of the centre, preparation

of food, and assisting those who frequent the centre. He is also

responsible for training and mentoring Community Jobs Scotland

employees when they join us, making sure they quickly learn the

ropes and access the training and assistance they need during

their time with us.

Bill makes sure everyone feels welcome at MADE4U.

Adele Bryson

Joined in March 2015 in an administration capacity after the

end of her Community Jobs Scotland post and since then her

role has grown to include a variety of community focused roles.

Adele has been studying towards her second year in BA Community

Education at UWS and has been completing her placement

with us. She has taken a lead on girls’ group, afterschool,

and sunday youth group as well as wider community events such

as our BBQs or fundraising events. We are privileged to work with

Adele as she progresses through her studies and deepens her

knowledge of the methods and tools of community work.

Community Job Scotland

MADE4U has, again, this year benefitted from Community Job

Scotland funding - a scheme where funding is provided to organisations

to employ young people not otherwise in education or

employment, between 16-29. These young people often have other

difficulties in life and the organisation employing these indviduals

aim to ofter support and guidance towards future paths. This

year, Colleen Brandon continued working with us beyond the end

of her CJS post, in order to support the organisation, and in October

2018, Adam Oliver came on board as Admin Assistant and has

been a real asset in the organisation.


£607.20 raised £272.00 raised £476.50 raised

In 2018-19, MADE4U raised £1740 through fundraising activties. These activities

included a Bagpack which young people from a number of groups attended and

organised, and therefore raised money for youth work within MADE4U.

A sponsored walk also took place which parents and supporters of the football

group organised and supported. Funds from this were allocated towards general

support of the football running costs.

Additionally, MADE4U held a “winter warmer" Christmas Fayre where the money

raised and was put towards centre costs and community activities.

Future Plans

In last year’s report, the Board noted that “in

challenging times the need for MADE4U IN

ML2 is greater than ever. By grace, we must

build on gifts of volunteers and staff and

those not yet involved.”

The Board continues to recognise that it

needs to be strengthened and must bring on

new and mostly younger trustees, who are

committed and with fresh skills, insights and

gifts to share. This is necessary if we are to

do any more than stumble from crisis to crisis

trying to tread water, and if we wish to build

on current achievements and opportunities

in our focus on work with vulnerable children,

young people and adults, with promotion of

mental health well-being as part of all we

do. These concerns must be our priority for

development and any future allocation of

limited resources – staff and money.

The Board are seeking approval for a change

in our legal organisational structure from

a Scottish charitable limited company to

that of a Scottish Charitable Incorporated

Organisation at our AGM on Wednesday

20th November 2019. This would marginally

reduce our legal compliance requirements

and expense whilst allowing more flexibility

than at present under Companies legislation.

Some prospective funders have been looking

for this less complex structure designed for

voluntary organisations. The aims and ethos

of MADE4U IN ML2 would remain unchanged.

One year on, we have now cut expenditure

to the bone. We were delighted to welcome

back Clare in April, initially on reduced

hours, now increased. It is sad to report the

retirement in November 2019 of Bill Craig

as Facilities Manager after 10 years rain or

shine as volunteer helper and staff member

and the end of Adam Oliver’s CJS placement.

Both will be sorely missed but we expect the

planned appointment of 2 new p/t workers this

month to help with book-keeping, caretaking

and some basic cooking.

We will also require a renewal of previous

support and increased involvement from

local supporters and well-wishers; and from

Christians from a range of local churches.

Trustees have been seeking a reduction or

cancellation of the rent paid to NLC for the

Centre which we refurbished and maintain but

as yet, to no avail. We are actively pursuing

all options.

The Trustees are mindful of our legal

responsibilities in the hard choices and

challenges that we face, in the differences we

want to make in our community.

Thank you for your support.



Report of the Trustees

for the Year Ended 31 March 2019

The trustees who are also directors of the charity for the purposes of the Companies Act 2006, present their

report with the financial statements of the charity for the year ended 31 March 2019. The trustees have adopted

the provisions of Accounting and Reporting by Charities: Statement of Recommended Practice applicable to

charities preparing their accounts in accordance with the Financial Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and

Republic of Ireland (FRS 102) (effective 1 January 2015).

Objectives and aims

As a Christian charity, MADE4U IN ML2's object is to promote, establish, operate or support schemes and

projects of a charitable nature for the benefit of the community within the operating area of the ML2 post code


- to relieve poverty and distress among young people and families;

- to advance education and lifelong learning;

- to promote training and skills to assist young people obtain paid employment;


to improve public health through raising awareness of health and healthy living, particularly for those with

mental illness, disability or impairment.

And to do so in a manner which helps people to experience the love of God in action by responding to needs

and offering encouragement and support, regardless of gender, disability race or religious beliefs.

Public benefit

MADE4U IN ML2 constitutes a public benefit as defined by FRS 102.


Our work would not be possible without the help of our volunteers.

Charitable activities


MADE4U is run by a small (mostly part-time) staff team, operating mainly out of a community centre in

Cambusnethan with a team of committed volunteers and board members. Motivated by our belief in God's love

for us, it is our aim to see people encouraged, empowered and engaged; making a difference that matters in the

local community. Our vision is to see a community free of isolation, free of low self-worth and free of lack of

opportunity for change.

MADE4U’s full activity report can be found on pages 9-17 of the Impact and Activities Report.


Financial position

The Trustees report a deficit of £26,450 for the year (2018 deficit £17,464). Net assets were £37,257 at 31

March 2019 (2018: £63,707).

We are grateful to the generosity of the Hinshelwood Gibson Trust, Wishaw Churches Together and of individual

local Christians, also North Lanarkshire Council for their Single Source Grant. We appreciate the weekly

provision of their large church hall by Cambusnethan Old for our weekly Alternative Dance sessions and

Cambusnethan North for hosting the Sahara Survivors holiday club. The bag-packing efforts of members of the

Sunday evening Youth Club and of the Girls Group at Safeway in March was terrific.

Reserves policy

The reserves policy is currently set at 3 months running costs plus statutory redundancy provision.


Strategy, Direction and Future Plans:

Notes under this area can be found on page 18 of the Impact and Activities Report.


Governing document

MADE4U IN ML2 is a company Limited by Guarantee without any share capital. Each member's liability is

limited to £1. The company is a registered charity and its affairs are governed by its memorandum and articles

of association.

Organisational structure

The original members of the company were the 3 subscribers to the memorandum and articles of association.

During the year under review the number of members was 190. The number of permitted members is unlimited

subject to the approval of the Board. Annual subscriptions fixed by the Board are, unless waived, in full or in

part, due from the members.

Increases or decreases in numbers of board members are subject to the general meeting of the company. The

Board currently meets monthly and requires a simple majority voting on all key issues. All members receive

regular updates on the progress of projects.

Key management remuneration

The trustees consider the board of trustees as comprising the key management personnel of the charity in

charge of directing and controlling the charity and running and operating the charity on a day to day basis. All

trustees give their time freely and no trustee received remuneration or expenses.

Risk management

The Board of Directors approves all projects. Each project is considered to identify any potential risk issues that

may result. Attempts are made where possible to eliminate risk or potential risk. In the event of any residual risk

remaining, assurances are required by the board that this be minimised.

It is realised that the main risk to the project is underfunding.

Reliance is required from staff and volunteers to be committed to working towards the aims and visions of the

project. The Board will strive to train, equip and empower both paid and unpaid staff to take this forward.

The organisation has Employers and Public Liability insurance against any potential claim. Volunteers and staff

working with children, young people and vulnerable groups are appropriately interviewed, inducted and put

through PVG checks with Disclosure Scotland (through our intermediary body, Volunteer Scotland (previously

Company law requires the trustees to prepare financial statements for each financial year which give a true and

fair view of the state of affairs of the charitable company and of the incoming resources and application of

resources, including the income and expenditure, of the charitable company for that period. In preparing those

financial statements, the trustees are required to





• select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently;

• observe the methods and principles in the Charity SORP;

• make judgements and estimates that are reasonable and prudent;

• prepare the financial statements on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to

presume that the charitable company will continue in business.

The trustees are responsible for keeping proper accounting records which disclose with reasonable accuracy at

any time the financial position of the charitable company and to enable them to ensure that the financial

statements comply with the Companies Act 2006. They are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the

charitable company and hence for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other


In so far as the trustees are aware:

- there is no relevant audit information of which the charitable company's auditors are

unaware; and

- the trustees have taken all steps that they ought to have taken to make themselves

aware of any relevant audit information and to establish that the auditors are aware

of that information.


The auditors, WDM Associates (Statutory Auditors), will be proposed for re-appointment at the forthcoming

Annual General Meeting.

Approved by order of the board of trustees on ............................................. and signed on its behalf by:


Rev I Murdoch - Trustee

Report of the Independent Auditors to the Trustees and Members of



We have audited the financial statements of MADE4U IN ML2 (the 'charitable company') for the year ended

31 March 2019 which comprise the Statement of Financial Activities, the Balance Sheet and notes to the

financial statements, including a summary of significant accounting policies. The financial reporting framework

that has been applied in their preparation is applicable law and United Kingdom Accounting Standards (United

Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice).

In our opinion the financial statements:

- give a true and fair view of the state of the charitable company's affairs as at 31 March 2019 and of its

incoming resources and application of resources, including its income and expenditure, for the year then


- have been properly prepared in accordance with United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting

Practice; and

- have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Companies Act 2006, the Charities and

Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005 and regulation 8 of the Charities Accounts (Scotland)

Regulations 2006.

Basis for opinion

We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK) (ISAs (UK)) and applicable

law. Our responsibilities under those standards are further described in the Auditors responsibilities for the audit

of the financial statements section of our report. We are independent of the charitable company in accordance

with the ethical requirements that are relevant to our audit of the financial statements in the UK, including the

FRC's Ethical Standard, and the provisions available for small entities, in the circumstances set out in note 18 to

the financial statements, and we have fulfilled our other ethical responsibilities in accordance with these

requirements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a

basis for our opinion.

Conclusions relating to going concern

We have nothing to report in respect of the following matters in relation to which the ISAs (UK) require us to

report to you where:

- the trustees' use of the going concern basis of accounting in the preparation of the financial statements is

not appropriate; or

- the trustees have not disclosed in the financial statements any identified material uncertainties that may

cast significant doubt about the charitable company's ability to continue to adopt the going concern basis

of accounting for a period of at least twelve months from the date when the financial statements are

authorised for issue.

Other information

The trustees are responsible for the other information. The other information comprises the information included

in the annual report, other than the financial statements and our Report of the Independent Auditors thereon.

Our opinion on the financial statements does not cover the other information and, except to the extent otherwise

explicitly stated in our report, we do not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.

In connection with our audit of the financial statements, our responsibility is to read the other information and, in

doing so, consider whether the other information is materially inconsistent with the financial statements or our

knowledge obtained in the audit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated. If we identify such material

inconsistencies or apparent material misstatements, we are required to determine whether there is a material

misstatement in the financial statements or a material misstatement of the other information. If, based on the

work we have performed, we conclude that there is a material misstatement of this other information, we are

required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in this regard.

Opinions on other matters prescribed by the Companies Act 2006

In our opinion, based on the work undertaken in the course of the audit:

- the information given in the Report of the Trustees for the financial year for which the financial statements

are prepared is consistent with the financial statements; and

- the Report of the Trustees has been prepared in accordance with applicable legal requirements.

Matters on which we are required to report by exception

In the light of the knowledge and understanding of the charitable company and its environment obtained in the

course of the audit, we have not identified material misstatements in the Report of the Trustees.

Report of the Independent Auditors to the Trustees and Members of


Matters on which we are required to report by exception

We have nothing to report in respect of the following matters where the Companies Act 2006 and the Charities

Accounts (Scotland) Regulations 2006 (as amended) requires us to report to you if, in our opinion:

- the charitable company has not kept proper and adequate accounting records or returns adequate for our

audit have not been received from branches not visited by us; or

- the financial statements are not in agreement with the accounting records and returns; or

- certain disclosures of trustees' remuneration specified by law are not made; or

- we have not received all the information and explanations we require for our audit; or

- the trustees were not entitled to take advantage of the small companies exemption from the requirement

to prepare a Strategic Report or in preparing the Report of the Trustees.

Responsibilities of trustees

As explained more fully in the Statement of Trustees Responsibilities, the trustees (who are also the directors of

the charitable company for the purposes of company law) are responsible for the preparation of the financial

statements and for being satisfied that they give a true and fair view, and for such internal control as the trustees

determine is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material

misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

In preparing the financial statements, the trustees are responsible for assessing the charitable company's ability

to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, matters related to going concern and using the going

concern basis of accounting unless the trustees either intend to liquidate the charitable company or to cease

operations, or have no realistic alternative but to do so.

Our responsibilities for the audit of the financial statements

Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements as a whole are free

from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error, and to issue a Report of the Independent Auditors

that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an

audit conducted in accordance with ISAs (UK) will always detect a material misstatement when it exists.

Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they

could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on the basis of these financial


A further description of our responsibilities for the audit of the financial statements is located on the Financial

Reporting Council's website at www.frc.org.uk/auditorsresponsibilities. This description forms part of our Report

of the Independent Auditors.

Use of our report

This report is made solely to the charitable company's members, as a body, in accordance with Chapter 3 of

Part 16 of the Companies Act 2006, and to the charitable company's trustees, as a body, in accordance with

Section 44(1)(c) of the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005 and regulation 10 of the Charities

Accounts (Scotland) Regulations 2006. Our audit work has been undertaken so that we might state to the

charitable company's members and trustees those matters we are required to state to them in an auditors' report

and for no other purpose. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility to

anyone other than the charitable company and the charitable company's members and trustees as a body, for

our audit work, for this report, or for the opinions we have formed.

Notes to the Financial Statements

for the Year Ended 31 March 2019


Basis of preparing the financial statements

The financial statements of the charitable company, which is a public benefit entity under FRS 102, have been

prepared in accordance with the Charities SORP (FRS 102) 'Accounting and Reporting by Charities: Statement

of Recommended Practice applicable to charities preparing their accounts in accordance with the Financial

Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of Ireland (FRS 102) (effective 1 January 2015)',

Financial Reporting Standard 102 'The Financial Reporting Standard applicable in the UK and Republic of

Ireland' and the Companies Act 2006. The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost



All income is recognised in the Statement of Financial Activities once the charity has entitlement to the funds, it

is probable that the income will be received and the amount can be measured reliably. The following specific

policies are applied to particular categories of income:

(a) Donations

Donations are included in the year in which they are receivable and the amount can be measured reliably.

(b) Grants

Grants are included in the year in which they are receivable and the amount can be measured reliably; this is

normally upon notification from the grant funder.

(c) Interest receivable

Interest on funds held on deposit is included when receivable and the amount can be measured reliably by the

charity; this is normally upon notification of the interest paid or payable by the bank.


Liabilities are recognised as expenditure as soon as there is a legal or constructive obligation committing the

charity to that expenditure, it is probable that a transfer of economic benefits will be required in settlement and

the amount of the obligation can be measured reliably. Expenditure is accounted for on an accruals basis and

has been classified under headings that aggregate all cost related to the category. Where costs cannot be

directly attributed to particular headings they have been allocated to activities on a basis consistent with the use

of resources.

Tangible fixed assets

Depreciation is provided at the following annual rates in order to write off each asset over its estimated useful



- 20% on cost


Office equipment - 33% on cost

Basic financial instruments

Basic financial instruments, which include trade and other debtors and cash and bank balances, are initially

measured at transaction price including transaction costs and are subsequently carried at amortised cost.


The charity is exempt from corporation tax on its charitable activities.


Notes to the Financial Statements - continued

for the Year Ended 31 March 2019


Hire purchase and leasing commitments

Rentals paid under operating leases are charged to the Statement of Financial Activities on a straight line

basis over the period of the lease.

Pension costs and other post-retirement benefits

The charitable company operates a defined contribution pension scheme. Contributions payable to the

charitable company's pension scheme are charged to the Statement of Financial Activities in the period to

which they relate.


Trade and other debtors are recognised at the settlement amount due. Prepayments are valued at the

amount prepaid net of any discounts due.

Cash at bank and in hand

Cash at bank and cash in hand includes cash and short term highly liquid investments with a short

maturity of three months or less from the date of acquisition or opening of the deposit or similar account.


Creditors are recognised where the charity has a present obligation resulting from a past event that will

probably result in the transfer of funds to a third party and the amount due to settle the obligation can be

measured or estimated reliably. Creditors are normally recognised at their settlement amount after

allowing for any discounts due.

Fund accounting

Unrestricted funds can be used in accordance with the charitable objectives at the discretion of the trustees.

Restricted funds can only be used for particular restricted purposes within the objects of the charity.

Restrictions arise when specified by the donor or when funds are raised for particular restricted purposes.

Further explanation of the nature and purpose of each fund is included in the notes to the financial statements.
