The Association is in the process of CIO registration. Our new constitution states: The objects of the CIO are to:
3.1 promote the benefit of the inhabitants of the area of benefit without distinction of sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, nationality, race or of political, religious or other opinions, by associating together the said inhabitants and the statutory authorities, voluntary and other organisations in a common effort to advance education and to provide facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation and leisure-time occupation with the object of improving the conditions of life for the said inhabitants;
3.2 establish, or secure the establishment of, a Community Centre and to maintain and manage the same (whether alone or in co-operation with any statutory authority or other person or body) in furtherance of the Objects;
3.3 promote such other charitable purposes as may from time to time be determined.
The Charity shall be non-party in politics and non-sectarian in religion. The area of benefit (“area of benefit”) shall be Lewisham and the surrounding areas.
The main activity is the provision and facilitation of services to the local community from the Honor Oak Community Centre.
