Registered Charity no. 1171730
The Burton Community Association (BCA) was formed by a group of village volunteers in 2014, later becoming a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) in 2017. The BCA framework has three organisational objectives, currently governed by a Constitutional Document to meet the requirements of the Charity Commission. The elected trustees of the BCA are all members of the community and have a responsibility for the furtherance of those objectives along with its administration and financial accountability. The trustees have decided to devolve some of those tasks to individual groups to meet specific needs of the charity, details of those groups are shown below and may change from time to time.
The BCA Constitutional Document also includes details on the procedures for election of trustees and the process for rotation of its members.
The BCA seeks to promote facilities in the interest of health and social welfare for recreation and leisure time, with the object of improving the conditions of life for the community of the village of Burton. The BCA has raised funds and established a children’s play area, provided a public accessed defibrillator and work closely with local authorities and Police.
