Change of Charitable Status

The Trustees recently reviewed our charitable status and have changed it from being an Unincorporated Trust to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). We are still a registered charity with all the benefits that brings but now, as we are incorporated, we can employ staff or enter into contracts more easily. The new charity has been set up with the same name and Trustees, but with a different governing document and charity registration number. Once we have transferred the assets from the old charity to the new one, the old charity will be dissolved and removed from the Charity Commission’s register.
