Hooray! Rooms of our Own is now a company. Have taken lots of advice, and many thanks to everyone who has provided it. In the end decided to set up a Company Limited by Guarantee – which is allowed to register as a charity in due course. Then if /when building (s) become available, advice is to set up a Community Interest Company at THAT stage, any profit from which would be channelled via the charity. All very complicated!!!
Will be recruiting supporters soon and establishing an advisory board – watch this space!!!!
