As an SCIO, our financials are completely transparent. Umbrella Lane has been built on 5 years of trust from our community, so we also publish narrative reports that share what we have achieved with the generous funding from our supporters.


The charity’s trustees are responsible for the preparation of the yearly accounts in accordance with the terms of the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005 and the Charities Accounts (Scotland) Regulations 2006 (as amended).

The charity's trustees consider that the audit requirement of Regulation 10(1) (a) to (c) of the 2006 Accounts Regulations does not apply and therefore an independent examiner is tasked to examine these accounts under  section 44 (1) (c) of the Act and to state whether particular matters have come to attention. The first independently examined accounts are available here with previous years annual reports also included. 


Our financial documents

We value all of our Umbrella Lane supporters. To keep things transparent and safe for both our community and donors, we want to outline that we comply with charity legislation. This means that our trustees are in charge of producing our yearly accounts, and are independently audited. These documents are always available for your review online so that you can see how we maximise our budget to best serve our Umbrella Lane community.


Please find our first independently examined accounts below, along with previous annual reports.

“As a student and migrant I went from a stable income to having nothing without any means of government or familial help. The emergency fund meant the world to me cause it meant I could feed myself and my dog.”
