Other news: The DDWC Committee are currently discussing the pro's and con's of becoming a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).

CIOs benefit from limited liability in the same way that charitable companies do. In comparison to an unincorporated association or trust, if things go wrong, the members and trustees are generally not personally liable for the any debts or other liabilities that the CIO incurs that are greater than the charity’s assets. A CIO structure gives a charity legal capacity to do things in its own name because, like a charitable company, it is a legal entity with separate legal personality. This means it can employ staff, own freehold property and take on leasehold property, and enter into commercial contracts (to provide services and buy or sell goods) in the charity’s name
