The first phase was about changing our legal structure to ensure we met Charity Commission requirements.
At the AGM in October 2009, members supported the setting up an independent charitable foundation, separate from the RCN.
The RCN Foundation is a company limited by guarantee and the RCN is the sole member of the charity. The Foundation formally came into being on the 1 April 2010 and has an independent Board of Trustees. There are four RCN Council members on the Board of Trustees.
The diagram below shows the resulting new legal structure of the RCN group. RCN Publishing Limited is a subsidiary company of the RCN. It is a company limited by guarantee and the RCN is the sole shareholder. The company has an independent Board of Directors.
