Flo’s – The Place in the Park is governed by People, Place & Participation Ltd (PPP), a Charitable Community Benefit Society set up specifically for this purpose in February 2018. A relatively new form of charitable governance which is exempt from registration by the Charities Commission but registered through the Financial Conduct Authority and HMRC.
Crucially a community business society is a membership body and the membership forum plays a key role in governance (detailed below).
As such, Flo’s is governed by the Rules of People, Place & Participation Ltd, Charitable Community Benefit Society reg. Number 7713. A full copy of our rules are available here: PP&P Rules
The governance and operation of Flo’s is managed through a structure of groups including:
- The Membership Forum
- Steering Group Circles
- Staff team
