Sorry for the lack of updates recently. The training in governance and structure was a successful evening and as a group we considered the various options for further development as an organisation and decided that working towards the establishment as a SCIO would be the best way forward. We are looking into this at the moment and would have an open election for board members of this before forming. If interested please get in touch.
We also discussed the role and aims of the group and felt that these were reflective of those of a development trust and that it would make these clearer to the wider public by making this a clear part of our aims, function and name.
We have had various discussions what Developments Trust Association Scotland about this and felt that our principles were very much in align with that of a developments trust. We will now register with them as a member and make sure we act with their core principles in mind. What this means can be found out by clicking here or in our about section.
If you would like to help us in establishing ourselves as SCIO, or would like to suggest further training suggestions then please get in touch.
