When setting up and running an Out of School Club it is vitally important that you have an appropriate legal structure. One of the most important reasons for this is to protect your personal liability. If you are choosing a Community Interest Company (CIC) as the legal status we have this resource “Becoming a Community Interest Company”. This resource provides guidance on what you need to do if this is the legal structure for your Out of School Childcare Club. This resource will form a package of resources to provide guidance on legal structures. Information about becoming a Charitable Incorporated Organisation and Private Partnerships has previously been shared, and we will be sharing further guidance and information about Limited Companies soon.
You will find the resources within the members area of our website, within Stepping Out, Step 12. If you would like to discuss your options in terms of legal structure, our Childcare Business Development Officers are here to help - you can contact your Regional Childcare Business Development Officer directly, or email email@example.com
