  • Bylaws

    In order to ensure we always look after charity money the best we can, we have a set of financial  guidelines as part of the SKIP Bylaws. The Bylaws are a supportive framework that represents how  we practically work from day-to-day.  

    The most up  to date bylaws can be found on Gdrive: SKIP resources > Governance. Section 8 (Finances) or on the SKIP Website- .  

    It is definitely worth reading because they are indispensable in understanding the way we work as  a charity. 

    If there’s anything you think should be changed, or you don’t agree with in the bylaws  this  is  something  that  is  discussed and  voted  on at  the  yearly General  Assembly and we would  definitely encourage you to suggest additions, amendments, or removals of bylaws!

  • Treasury Tools

    Completing tools are essential to the running of a SKIP branch, and especially so with regards to treasury.  They  ensure  we  are  meeting legal requirements and can  maintain our  status as a registered charity.

    This is a brief overview of the tools so that all SKIP members are aware of them. If you are the branch treasurer or part of the treasury team you will receive more in-depth training.
