Since 1st September 2003 the Bestwood Partnership has been a charitable Company Limited by Guarantee, registered at Companies House no. 4882639. The Memorandum and Articles of Association, which are available for inspection at the Registered Office (Bestwood Directions, Henry Whipple School) were worded in such a way as to be compatible with the charitable characteristics of the organisation, and registration with the Charity Commission was completed on 5th January 2009, no. 1127367.
The Autumn Conference constitutes the Annual General Meeting of the Company, which made the Conference of October 16th 2004 the first AGM. Partnership Conferences are at least once year and the Autumn Conference has always been the time for elections to Bestwood Partnership Forum and official business.
The Partnership's activity now reaches across Bestwood Ward - Bestwood Estate, Leen Valley, Arnold Rd Estate, Top Valley (East) and Bestwood Park, and increasingly to Basford Ward, especially Heathfield and Old Basford, and work is also undertaken for clients in Top Valley (West) in Bulwell Forest ward and in Bulwell itself, alongside One Vision Partnership, and even occasionally beyond the City boundary. This reflects the strategic approach and commitment of the Partnership to the wider area which increases year by year.
