Hello all,

DFEY has been had £500 donated to it by substance.coop, thank you to
them for this.  This will be primarily targetted at transport

Currently, however, we have no way to accept this donation.  DFEY has
never been a very formalised organisation, mainly because there was
never any need for it - but without this there is no way of having a
group bank account.

To that end I would like to propose that we sign up to the One Click
Orgs Beta programme [1], allowing us to cut out a large chunk of the
work involved in setting up a legal structure.  I saw a demonstration
of it at the London Hackspace this week and it seems to be a decent
application that will allow for a structured but dynamic group.

A couple of problems have been pointed out with regard to child
protection, and will have to be dealt with before this goes ahead.  (I
think we will need to speak with some professionals in this field at the
very least).

Does anyone have any comments?


What might be good is if we have some sort of statement or "constitution" of what we are, exactly and precisely. Nothing stupidly formal, but it would be good, and it helps tie us down: which means it's easier to argue "this is a correct use of donations" because we have a refferal document.

Apologies if something like this exists already,
