CHIP is now a SCIO!
We have changed our legal status from being a Company Limited by Guarantee to a SCIO (Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation). This means we now have OSCR (Scottish Charity Regulator) as a single regulator and no longer have to report to Companies House. Don't worry - you won't see any difference in the day-to-day running of CHIP+ - however this change will help us to streamline some of the background processes, which will save us both precious time and resources in the ever challenging economic climate. This has also provided us with the opportunity to refresh our constitution (our governing document) and ensure we are operating in line with best practice. Our new constitution is available on the CHIP+ website (www.chipplus.org.uk) and we are in the process of updating all of our information including membership forms etc. Watch this space!
