Formal Status

Raincliffe Wood Community Enterprise (RWCE) was incorporated on 13th October 2013 as a Company Limited by Guarantee under Company Number 08721649. 

Following a review of its structure by the Board, a resolution was put to the membership to convert RWCE to a Community Interest Company.  This new status will allow it to access various funding streams which would not otherwise be available whilst ensuring that the organisation remains regulated and transparent. At an Extraordinary General Meeting held on 19 February 2019 that resolution was unanimously approved.

This means that Raincliffe Wood Community Enterprise is now registered at Companies House as a Community Interest Company under Company Number  08721649.    The new official name of the organisation is Raincliffe Wood Community Enterprise C.I.C.
