RAK's legal status has changed from a registered charity to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). 

From the point of view of our clients, of our staff and volunteers and of our relationships with other organisations, we want to have no detectable difference between the new and old legal status, and the charity name will be the same. We have the same trustees, and the same staff, to offer the same services and activities to our clients and to have the same agreements and contracts with the organisations with which we work and with our suppliers. The only difference is that the charity registration number will change. Our new Charitable Incorporated Organisation no. is 1176768. The transfer of legal status took place on 1 September  2018.
