Today we are making two big announcements. The first is that we have been granted charitable status. We’ve always felt that our work was for the public benefit and felt that this was the right time in our journey to become a CIO. And secondly, we announce our cohort of 14 individuals who will be taking part in our new spokesperson programme for grassroots leaders with lived experience of social injustice and social inequality.
