Management/Governance

 

Changing demands, management issues and building projects is leading more hall trustees to consider incorporation. During 2016 we have enjoyed being able to help 9 halls for Action in rural Sussex through the Big Lottery Village SOS funding programme, 4 with transfer to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) and 5 with preliminary work developing capital projects or other management issues. 

We help reduce the cost of CIO set up by helping trustees with the preliminary work through to registration of a CIO with the Charity Commission and preparation for subsequent transfer of property. In Sussex and Somerset we assist charities through Action in rural Sussex and the Community Council for Somerset, elsewhere working direct with charities.
