LGF Annual Report and Financial Statements: year ending 31 March 2008

Here’s a PDF copy of the Lesbian and Gay Foundation’s Annual Report and Financial Statements, for the year ending 2008.

More than a quarter of the LGF’s income comes from one primary care trust (North Manchester) and about another 50% from other primary care trusts and health bodies. Which are exactly the kind of things that are going to be cut back in bankrupt Britain in the next couple of years if you ask me.

The LGF blows £75,000 a year on rent for its Princess Street offices. Time to move somewhere cheaper? A portacabin on the Bloom Street car-park perhaps?

Staff wages cost £592,901 in 2008. With another £58,572 spent on National Insurance and £43,423 on pensions.

There was a cost of £61,589 to generate voluntary income of £100,736.

What people are asking this week (no. 789): The LGF

Why doesn’t the name of the LGF (or ‘Lesbian and Gay F**kwits’ as the poppets are known locally) include bisexual or transgender? Who could be dropped next? Lesbians perhaps?
