Our Purpose

#iChope Events CIC was established to improve the lives of our community, communicate advances in research and to raise awareness of charities and good causes through co-created events.  Visit our programme page for further information.

We are a Community Interest Company (CIC) and our purpose is to help improve the health of our community whilst raising awareness of members of our community.  CIC's are organisations who reinvest money for the good of their identified community and business rather than for private shareholders.  CICs are regulated by Companies House and the Community Interest Company Regulator.


At least 50% of our profits are distributed amongst our community.  Remaining profits are be invested into the CIC and used to stage events or experiences beneficial to our community.
