A Community Interest Company is a type of social enterprise introduced by the UK Government in 2005 under the Companies Act 2004, designed for social enterprises that want to use their profits and assets for the public good. CICs have the flexibility and certainty of the company form, but with some special features to ensure they are working for the benefit of the community.
Being a social enterprise means that REFLECT works as a charity does, for the greater good or important cause rather than simply making profits, which is the aim of most private sector companies. As a social enterprise, REFLECT is part of what is known as the third sector, along with charities, community groups and voluntary organisations.
As an official social enterprise, we can offer our partners along with the general public – the security and peace of mind that comes from knowing that we are a properly structured, registered and transparent company.
