We first became a charity in 2016 and are registered with the Charities Commission as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (registration number 1166022)
Our Constitution sates that our Objectives are:
Without distinction of political, religious or other opinions,
1) To promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities by providing a building and related facilities (the “Barford Youth & Community Centre”) for meetings and activities of the local Scouting and Guiding groups and providing other support to those Groups; and
2) To provide a building and related facilities in the interests of social welfare for educational, recreational and other leisure time activities by the residents of Barford and neighbouring communities in the south of Warwickshire with the object of improving their conditions of life, and providing other support for such activities.
If necessary to resolve any conflict or overlap in use of resources or finances, including requests for use of the building and facilities, Objective 1) shall have priority over Objective 2)
Anyone can be a member of the charity and we hold meetings of the Supporters Group quarterly.
The Trustees of the charity currently are: Ian Paterson (Chair), Alex Farr (Treasurer), Rod Scott, Ed Butlin, Martin Russell, Hilary Burvill and Jane Scott.
Martin Russell is a Trustee in his role as Group Scout Leader and Hilary Burvill is a Trustee in her role as Guide Unit Leader. Jane Scott is a trustee as a Church Warden.
