Governance

Friends of Stretford Public Hall has a unique legal structure that ensures the Hall will always be run for the benefit of the community.

We are a charitable community benefit society registered under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014. We aim to serve the interests of the broader community, beyond our own membership.

We also have exclusively charitable aims and a charitable asset lock. An asset lock is a rule which prevents members from profiting by selling or closing the business. The asset lock means the hall will never fall into private ownership.

We are registered by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and our society number is CBS 7220.
