What we do - for Groups & Organsiations

There are various different types of groups. In this context we are not using the word with any legal meaning but just to signify a bunch of people who have got together for some purpose. They may be an entirely informal association, they may have set up a club and set up a constitution or they may even have some form of corporate structure.

Usually, the aims of the organisation are not commercial.

The services they require tend to be very similar.

Typical examples of organisations that may benefit from our services are:

  • Trade unions
  • Groups formed to pursue collective action after an accident or disaster
  • Residents Groups
  • Self help groups in failed developments
  • Timeshare owners committees
  • Charities operating internationally
