Financial Records

Scope and Content

The financial records are for the most part, fairly high level. They largely consist of the annual statements of account that were presented at the Annual General Meetings, although there also are some cash books. They serve to demonstrate how efficiently the organization was run in terms of its cost effectiveness. Also in this sub-group are the files relating to the applications made by the organization for annual funding, from for example the North West Arts Board [NWAB] and the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities [AGMA].

Administrative / Biographical History

The financial records were kept by the Co-ordinator [later Director]. In line with the requirements of the constitution of the organization, and later the demands imposed by the company's charitable status, annual financial statements were prepared. Auditors were appointed until 1997 when the Board decided to appoint a Treasurer.


The financial records are arranged in six series as follows:

  • NWP 2/1 Funding
  • NWP 2/2 Annual Financial Statements
  • NWP 2/3 General Financial Information
  • NWP 2/4 Invoices/Receipts 1991-1995
  • NWP 2/5 Correspondence
  • NWP 2/6 Cash books
