SCOTTISH MENTAL HEALTH CO-OPERATIVE
The Scottish Mental Health Co operative are delighted to have had support and guidance from Senscot Legal.
We needed to adapt our legal status to remain functional and relevant and in order to prepare the ground for further organisational evolution. Senscot Legal enabled this to happen with the minimum of fuss and exactly to our requirements.

SPARTA TRAMPOLINE CLUB SCIO

We, Sparta Trampoline Club SCIO, contacted Senscot Legal following recommendations from several gymnastics clubs who had used their services in the past. We were not disappointed as they helped us become a SCIO within a few months. The service they provided was professional and personal. We had one-to-one communication with Kirsty from start to finish and she was particularly great at breaking down the requirements OSCR set out, and their feedback was given in a way that was easy for us to understand and provide what was required. Thank you so for all your help – becoming a SCIO is allowing us to continue to develop and reach our full potential!

Specialist legal knowledge is worth its weight in gold to social entrepreneurs, especially in the very early stages of their plans. I can wholeheartedly recommend Senscot Legal for their professionalism and attention to detail in preparing our incorporation documents and employment contracts to our specification and in a timely manner. I knew that we were forming a great partnership even from our first meeting with Helen and Kirsty. Our relationship grew from there and working with the team at Senscot Legal has become an incredibly positive experience, greatly enhanced by their approachability and friendliness. Aiming for excellence is an essential part of building the foundations of a social enterprise, and having approachable legal advisors with fair, transparent pricing is hugely beneficial. As a start-up Community Interest Company, StepUp Shoeshine CIC has a big vision that needs the support of trusted partners. Senscot Legal was a super choice!

We used Senscot Legal earlier this year to incorporate our business. From our very first meeting, we felt comfortable, relaxed and assured that we had chosen the right company to help us with the legal side of setting up our social enterprise. Each step was carried out with professional efficiency as well as extremely promptly. Thank you Senscot Legal.

When we were looking for advice on how best to re-structure the legal status of the Club, Senscot Legal provided clear guidance every step of the way. They even made representation on our behalf to ensure the Licensing Authority were satisfied with the provisions of our amended constitution. Great service at an affordable price – would have no hesitation in using this service again.

I never knew a legal service could be so straightforward, effective, helpful and, above all, human! Senscot Legal guided us through the process from informal group to fully fledged SCIO without any gobbledegook or stuffy legalese… whilst treating us with great courtesy and kindness along the way. Quite simply the best legal team I’ve ever worked with!”

At the start of 2013, Assist Social Capital changed our status from being a company limited by guarantee with charitbable status to become a Community Interest Company. This had never been done before in Scotland so we needed expert advise to help us chart a way through this situation. We received fantastic support from Senscot Legal. Karina McRitchie’s knowledge of social enterprise was critical, allowing her to liaise with OSCR and the CIC Regulator on our behalf in a process previsouly untested. Senscot Legal has also renewed our company policies ensuring they are up to date and in line with new laws and regulations, which took a huge weight off our team.
I cannot praise Senscot Legal highly enough, their professionallity, deep understanding of social enterprise and the ability to communicate effectively with non-legal people, which makes them a briliant resource for the third sector in Scotland. We will definitely be working with them in the future for advice on contracts and setting up trading arms, etc.

Senscot Legal supplied a great service to us and were very responsive to our needs as a start-up company and charity. Senscot Legal staff listened to our requirements, keep us up to date with progress and expertly conveyed our plans into a working constitution. They were our partners in all stages towards achieving Charitable status. We look forward to working with Senscot Legal in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending Senscot to others setting out on the road to establishing a Social Enterprise.
