Last Friday I sent our application to Companies House.
Today, just 8 days later, I received our certificate declaring us a CIC (Community Interest Company) with a company number. This seems to be cause for celebration but as yet I'm not sure quite what it means, or how it will unfold. Maybe if the day arrives when it all comes clear that will be the day we fold since roaming is defined as 'moving about or travelling aimlessly or unsystematically, especially over a wide area'.
Roaming and Returning
We're gradually returning to old patterns of meeting, chatting, making things in the wake of Covid. We're glad to be back at Breadline. Even when we couldn't meet, Roamers stayed in touch by telephone, postal projects (details here) and this website. But we're most ourselves and most at ease -- most Roaming -- when we're really together.

Laura Wild is Roaming's Lead Facilitator and one of its directors. "Click" about us to find out more about who we are and what we do, or read about...
Roaming's official goal is "to carry on creative activities that benefit the community and in particular (without limitation) people who find themselves in some way disadvantaged, excluded or vulnerable." Our values are really our common ground: confidentiality, integrity, fairness, respect for the values and culture of others, the withholding of judgement, inclusivity, flexibility, and equity in relationships.
