Friends of Stretford Public Hall has a unique legal structure that ensures the Hall will always be run for the benefit of the community.
We are a Charitable Community Benefit Society registered under the Cooperative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014 and so we aim to serve the interests of the broader community, beyond our own membership. We also have exclusively charitable objects and a charitable asset lock. An asset lock is a rule which prevents members from making a capital gain by selling or closing the business for a profit, so the Hall will never fall into private ownership.
We are registered by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and our society number is CBS 7220.
Beyond our rules, we have a number of documents which both members and the wider public can access to find out more about our governance:
- Rules: The rules of our society that sets out how we are governed.
- AGM presentation: Presentation from our 2017 Annual General Meeting
- Complaints Procedure: Guidance on how to make a complaint about our organisation
