Legal structure

Frontline Development is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status:

  • Registered in Northern Ireland on 23rd October 1995
  • Company registration number: NI 030093
  • Registered with HM Revenue & Customs for charitable tax purposes

Partnership approach

Frontline does not employ staff in India but works through a local partner - United Christian Church of India (UCCI).

The partnership began in the early 1980s and has flourished over the years due to a close working relationship based on trust, transparency and a common goal.

Frontline directors and supporters visit the work in Vijayawada regularly (at least 1 or 2 times a year).

The directors believe this partnership-based model provides the best return for the charity's investment and offers the best hope of long-term sustainability.
