As of 31st October 2017, Community Moorings Scotland is officially registered with The Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). This has been a six-month process from drafting the constitution as a member-led charity to applying for and adapting our charity application.
But now we can officially say that charity no. SC047877 is Community Moorings Scotland, known as ‘CMS’.
This is great news as not only does it give us our official stamp of recognition as a worthwhile charity and approves our charitable aims, it also allows us to enter into contracts, open bank accounts and trade. Basically it is a big fat ‘GO’!!!
Full details of our charitable purposes, our ‘objects’ and Constitution will be added to the website in due course, along with trustee details and more officialdom now we are registered, however for now we just wanted to spread the word about this great news 🙂
