Hi

Welcome to the site and thanks for joining! We hope to develop into a practical resource for all CICs and CIC Partners, and in due course id love to hear your thoughts on improving the awareness levels of CIC as a utility for charities etc.

We’ll be sending out regular updates on development and look forward to your input.

Best regards
