We are registered as a Community Benefit Society under the name of EFJ Limited. Our registration number is 31939R. A Community Benefit Society is a type of Industrial and Provident Society, which can be either a co-operative working for the benefit of its members or that exists to benefit the community. We are not registered as a charity as this would limit us to only supporting ‘charitable’ projects.
