Community Interest Company (CIC)
Community Interest Companies (CICs) are limited companies with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community, rather than being driven by the need to maximise profit for shareholders and owners.
Active Dorset's registration as a CIC in June 2009 was approved by the Regulator who also has a continuing monitoring and enforcement role.
Our Community Interest Statement describes the benefit we aim to bring to our community:
Active Dorset will provide benefit to the population of the geographic county of Dorset, in particular those with an aspiration to become, or who are currently engaged in sport or physical activity.
Our company objectives are:
To promote, and act as a strategic lead among organisations in the promotion of participation and engagement in sport and physical activity amongst the population within the geographic area of the county of Dorset.
