First annual report for the new FRU charity published

We are pleased to publish our latest annual report and accounts. The report covers the 12 months to December 2022 and is the first operational report for the incorporated FRU charity.

Highlights of the report include:

  • 2022 marked fifty years of FRU work.
  • We secured more income for our clients in just three months of operation than the entire annual cost of our service, demonstrating our excellent value for money.
  • We were delighted to receive funding for an enhanced service in the county of Essex from the Essex Community Foundation. This resulted in gains for Essex clients of over six times the value of the grant
  • FRU made a small financial surplus during the period - something that isn't always guaranteed in these challenging funding times.
