Transition Belper is a charity - but not a registered charity - governed by at least six trustees elected at the Annual General Meeting in October. We can only register as a charity with the Charity Commissioners once our turnover reaches a certain level. The Trustees then determine who will act as Chair, Secretary and Treasurer and who will make up the Core Group to organise projects, events, meetings and interest groups.
The current trustees:

Ian Jackson – Chair
Tony Webster - Secretary
Tony Cooper - Treasurer
Craig Scott
Mick Hepworth
Adrian Rochford

The Core Group are all the Trustees along with others with a particular interest or wishing to set up a group who have been invited to join.

Transition Belper Ltd is registered in England and Wales - Registration number 8329863. We are a charitable company not having a share issue and have adopted the attached Articles of Association (PDF 360kb)

Just in case you were under the impression that Transition is a process defined by people who have all the answers, you need to be aware of a key fact.

We truly don't know if this will work. Transition is a social experiment on a massive scale.
What we are convinced of is this:

    •    if we wait for the governments, it'll be too little, too late
    •    if we act as individuals, it'll be too little
    •    but if we act as communities, it might just be enough, just in time.

Everything that you read on this site is the result of real work undertaken in the real world with community engagement at its heart. There's not an ivory tower in sight, no professors in musty oak-panelled studies churning out incomprehensible papers, no inflexible plans that MUST be adhered to.

This website, just like the Transition model, is brought to you by people who are actively engaged in transition in their own community. People who are learning by doing - and learning all the time. People who understand that we can't sit back and wait for someone else to do the work. People like you, perhaps...
