The Right Structure for You ?

The Partnership is running free workshops in conjunction with Cumbria CVS to explore different legal and governance structures. The workshops will provide an opportunity to clarify and explore different governance structures including community interest companies, charitable incorporated organisations charities, charitable companies and companies limited by guarantee – to help you decide which structure is right for you and perhaps whether your current structure is still fit for purpose.

For example, it is becoming clear that many community groups do not currently have a legal structure that protects trustees and limits their personal liability, which often makes it difficult to recruit new trustees.

The workshop is suitable both for social enterprises and community organisations and for those just starting out to organisations that have been operating for many years, and also for anyone contemplating setting up a new community or social enterprise.

The training is for third sector organisations only and is FREE* through Cumbria County Council’s Social Enterprise Networking programme.

There are two workshops being held, one in the south and one in the north:
