Changing from an unincorporated unregistered charity, as the Trust has been since its inception, to a CIO gives standing as a separate legal entity (similar to a Limited Company) that can enter contracts, hold property, and employ staff in its own name with trustee limited liability. It also results in greater transparency, scrutiny and public accountability facilitating correspondence with HMRC on charitable tax advantages and also serving to reassure potential funders and donors.
