Resolution to members
In May 2019, Senscot members agreed that Senscot explore a revision of its current governance structure. The Senscot Board now seeks the approval of members for the following proposal:
- To create a merged charitable entity with Social Firms Scotland (SFS) to represent both social firms and social enterprises in Scotland.
- To embed Social Enterprise Networks (SENs) and their members at the heart of the governance structure of this merged charitable entity.
- To ensure that the merged entity maintains an ongoing relationship with Senscot’s existing individual members.
In doing so, Senscot presents any required applications to the charity regulator in order to gain prior regulatory consent for detailed proposals agreed between Senscot and SFS, which will then be subject to an EGM of the company within the next eight weeks.
