We made a conscious decision to make FR8PK a Social Enterprise, incorporating as a Company Limited by Guarantee, which means all ‘profits’ go back into the business, not anyone’s pockets. We were helped along the way by Wales Co-Operative Centre, an organisation creating a better, fairer, more co-operative Wales, who assisted us in choosing the most suitable model for FR8PK, writing our Articles of Association and ensuring all of our current and future assets are protected.
We’re committed to recruiting two further appointments to the board at FR8PK so that we ensure effective management and leadership across a range of organisational needs.
We visited sites around the UK this month, taking in what makes other similar projects work and meeting with those who’ve overseen their success. In all we visited projects in Cardiff, Bristol, London and Newcastle, of course staying within social distancing measures and restrictions. During the visits, while in transit, our Director Wez interviewed with Wales Co-Operative Centre for their #GoodNewsCymru
