Who's Behind It

The Bristol Pound is a not-for-profit partnership between Bristol Pound Community Interest Company (CIC) and Bristol Credit Union.

We are committed to listening and acting on the concerns of the members. A minimum of two of the CIC board members are elected on to the board of directors every two years and we run regular user group meetings and other events aimed at making sure that the views and ideas of the members are taken into account by the team that deliver the Bristol Pound.

The legal members of the Bristol Pound CIC are the board of directors with an AGM held as appropriate. Bristol Pound CIC organise several events throughout the year to engage the wider Bristol Pound membership including an annual meeting, at which elections to the board take place every two years.

The Bristol Pound CIC is not affiliated with any political party or political movement. The team is made up of people from a variety of backgrounds. There is more information about CICs here. Bristol Pound CIC is a Living Wage Employer and has signed the Bristol Zero Tolerance pledge.
