Liverpool-based charity appoints MHA Moore and Smalley

Nugent, a large Liverpool-based charity, has appointed MHA More and Smalley as its new audit partner.

Nugent educates, cares for, and protects children, adults and families facing adversity across Merseyside through its care homes, schools and community work. It employs more than 450 staff and benefits from the support of approximately 200 volunteers. The organisation celebrates its 140th anniversary this year.

It will be serviced by the Liverpool office of MHA Moore and Smalley following a competitive pitch. Specialists from MHA Moore and Smalley will work with Nugent to provide audit and compliance services to the organisation and its Board of Trustees.

Nugent’s client team will be led by Andrew Matthews, partner, MHA Moore and Smalley.

He said: “We are proud to be acting for such a well-established and respected charity. MHA Moore and Smalley has always had a strong specialism in the not-for-profit sector and this appointment further endorses our expertise in audit work for the sector.

“We believe this is also a real indicator of our ability to compete alongside some of the biggest names in the accounting and auditing profession.”

Adrian Bloor, CFO at Nugent, said: “As well as ensuring we provide the highest levels of service and care to our beneficiaries and stakeholders, we must also demonstrate outstanding governance and financial accountability.

“We were impressed by MHA Moore and Smalley’s expertise in the charity and non-profit sector and were convinced they are the right partner to oversee our financial reporting requirements.”

MHA Moore and Smalley’s Liverpool office is based at 20 Chapel Street in the city centre.
