Organisational Design and Registration.
After a full examination of your needs, we will suggest the appropriate legal structure/s to achieve your goals. We take full account of empowerment needs as well as the security of any assets you may wish to protect.
We work with Co-operatives UK Limited to process registrations. If your registration costs are not covered by a contractual grant, we will not charge you so you only pay the same as if you had approached them direct.
Strategy and Sustainability.
