After nearly three years of responding to the needs of refugees and asylum seekers as they arise, SiC is developing a clearer and more coherent structure to help all supporters find a direct route to opportunities actively to join in our work. Many supporters help through donations – both regular and one-off – but a good number of people who want to work to support refugees find it hard to work out how best to do this.
We expect to receive approval from the Charity Commission in the next 4 weeks for our proposed status as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. On this link you will find a paper in 2 parts setting out the structure of our work. Part 1 is an executive summary equal to one side of A4. Everyone is encouraged at least to read that part. Many will then want to skip straight to the section(s) they are most interested in by going to the relevant numbered paragraph in the main part of the paper – part 2.
We are keen to engage as many people as we can in our work and there is plenty for everyone to do.
In two weeks time a circular will go out – on the web-site and by email – inviting all supporters to choose an area of work they would like to be part of.
We plan to follow this up with a launch event for SiC as a registered CIO at which we hope to get together as many of our network members as possible.
