Closure of The MEACH Trust

In view of questions being asked, and the absence of any public statement, The ME Association asked the Charity Commission (CC) a number of questions last week regarding the decision to dissolve the MEACH TRUST charity on 21 August 2007.

These were:

  1. Why has the charity ceased to function?

    The CC were unable to clarify and pointed out that they generally do not make enquiries when a charity decides to dissolve.

  2. What has happened to the money (around £88,000 over five years) that was being raised to build a care home?

    The CC was unable to provide an answer.

  3. What has happened to the remaining assets?

    Any remaining assets have been donated to the 25% Group.
