CheckIn Works, the charity marked its fifth birthday in 2015. In these few years, it has had a significant impact in terms of the numbers accessing its services from throughout Perthshire as well as developing Giraffe Trading, its subsidiary CIC as an economically viable, sustainable social enterprise. Both Boards of Trustees boast an impressive, professional wealth of skills that have benefitted the organisations in their crucial founding years. Now the Boards are developing a robust joint strategy for the future to ensure continued social impact and economic success.
