HBDCA are thrilled to announce that we have officially received government recognition as a Registered Charity this autumn. We are now a fully-fledged Charitable Incorporated Organisation, regulated by the UK Charity Commission. This is great news not only for the HBDCA team, but for all those who stand to benefit from our activities providing psychosocial support to the bleeding disorders community.
We are grateful to our Director, all our Staff and Trustees, and our clients who have supported us on this journey toward formally recognised charitable status. Special thanks go to Nina, Joseph and Jacqueline (Trustees) for giving up their time and providing expert input on the governance documents, and resident Finance specialist Cynthia for her tireless work on our behalf to ensure we fulfilled our goal.
Registration as a charity establishes the official status of HBDCA and allows us to start raising funds and receive donations, to grow further as a community and be a positive force for individuals, their families and carers affected by bleeding disorders.
2020 has been a challenging year for everyone however we look forward to taking this achievement into a tremendously successful 2021 and positively affecting as many people as possible within the bleeding disorders community.
