What is a CIC?

Plymouth Sling Library were pleased to have their status as a Community Interest Company confirmed by Companies House in May 2016. But what is a CIC?

A Community Interest Company (or CIC) is a special type of Limited Company which exists to benefit the community not private shareholders. As a social enterprise we take money for hiring baby carriers but reinvest our profits back into the company to keep doing what we do.

We are a group of parents who volunteer our time to help other parents and caregivers learn how to safely and correctly carry their babies and toddlers and reap the associated benefits of babywearing.
