a development and consultancy company, supporting our partners
and clients to design, deliver and improve the services that they
offer in the areas where we have worked for over 25 years,
We make it our business to be up to date with policy
initiatives, programmes and policy in these areas - but our
passion is to respond by working 'bottom up' with our partners
and clients - designing and implementing solutions, extracting
and publicising the lessons.
Our values and governance:
Rinova is a social enterprise, in that we are a
business with social objectives, owned by our staff with no
external shareholders. Over time, we aim to make surpluses in our
business activities by adding value to our partners and providing
the best customer service to them - and any
such surpluses would be re-invested to support
our social goals.
We have a 'John Lewis' approach to company ownership - our
members are our staff. Having set ourselves up as a limited company
in 2010 to 'get going', we will be exploring the best governance
model for our organisation as we grow and develop.
Uniquely, we also plan to set up a new Charitable Foundation,
which will be entirely independent of Rinova and have its own Board
of Trustees - but will own one-fifth of the company and will
receive endowments from it. The objectives of the Charity will be
to support young people who are otherwise excluded to gain access
to the arts, cultural and sporting activities.
