Frequently Asked Questions
This is where you will find answers to the most common questions.
Are you a charity?
No. We are a Community Interest Company (CIC).
What is a CIC?
A community interest company is a special type of non-charitable limited company introduced by the United Kingdom government in 2005 under the Companies Act 2004, designed for social enterprises that want to use their profits and assets for the public good. They exist primarily to benefit a community or with a view to pursuing a social purpose, rather than to make a profit for shareholders.
The statutory basis of the asset lock, ensures that a CIC’s funds will be used for the benefit of the company’s social objectives rather than for individual shareholders, helps provide reassurance to investors and the wider public. More generally, the fact that community interest companies are subject to ongoing regulation by the CIC Regulator helps to create confidence in the integrity of a CIC.
