Balance CIC converts to Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO)

Balance CIC converts to Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) 

Every organisation has struggled during the COVID-19 pandemic to  assist their customers and employees, Balance has remained true to its mission and supported people the best and safest way possible to remain living as independently as possible.   As part of their continued effort to support more people to live independentlyBalance CIC is converting to Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). 

 

The benefits that the charity status will offer 

“The last six months have brought unprecedented challenges and Balance has felt more than ever connected to our client group adapting to deliver support remotely such as virtual video meetings, walking meetings, telephone, WhatsApp groups and other creative methods of keeping people connected and safe. Balance staff have been at the heart of this creative support ensuring that people continued to receive a level of support across all our services. The change to charitable status means that we can raise funds through fundraising and apply for more charitable funding, this will support us to reach out to more people. We know that post COVID-19 public funds will be even tighter than previously, we believe that by converting from a Community Interest Company (also a non-for-profit trading company) to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation will support us through the next chapter”. 

 Andrea Biggs, Chief Executive

 

 We are excited about this transition to take the organisation further beyond its spin out foundations and develop the business to support more people, to live the life they want, whilst ensuring the sustainability of our operations.
