News

We’re pleased to let our users and supporters know that our application to OSCR (the Scottish charity regulator) to become a SCIO (Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation) has been successful. The decision to change to our status was taken at our AGM in December 2019.

As a SCIO the Centre becomes an independent legal entity able to hold assets (eg the building) and liabilities (eg utility contracts) in its own right rather than, as at present, as the personal responsibility of named office bearers and this change will protect both the assets of the charity and the position of the trustees.

The next step is to transfer the assets to the new SCIO which will take a little time especially in the current circumstances and in due course we will hold a final AGM to close the existing unincorporated association and an inaugural AGM to launch the SCIO.

We would also like to let you know that, although we’re not yet able to open the Centre and resume bookings, we’re looking forward very much to when we can. We’re awaiting specific advice and guidance but in the meantime we’re starting to plan so that we’re in a good position once we get the go ahead.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Centre soon.
