SSL constitution

Salisbury Sling Library [SSL] Constitution

Background and Aims
SSL was set up in February 2014 by Aimee Helliker and Carol Kite in order to provide information, advice and support for Babywearing in the Salisbury Area.

SSL is a non profit making organisation.
SSL operates as an Unincorporated Association. All money from hires is used for running the library.
All work carried out for the library is done so on a voluntary basis.
Funding for the library was provided by non interest loans.
Further funds are generated by the hiring of carriers, donations and sales.
Funds raised by hiring are used to purchase further carriers and for other administrative costs such as insurance and publicity.
No income or assets of SSL will be distributed to any volunteers or members or any other entity as payment.
On dissolution of SSL, all of its assets will be distributed to another non-profit organisation, as agreed by the administrator and volunteers.

The library is run by a committee of members; Alice Aston, Danielle Hunt, Susie Cooke, Louise Holley, Andi Booth and Mary Poole. 
The committee is collectively responsible for decisions re stock.

All individuals who participate in library sessions and use the library are deemed to be members of the library.
Members who have undertaken recognised training or who have experience of baby wearing gained from practice are welcome to contribute to the library’s work: we are happy to discuss how they may support the work of the library.
If there is a conflict of interest with a member which is deemed to be prejudicial to the workings of the library and cannot be resolved by the committee then membership may be rescinded.

The library aims to support peer supporters to train so that they can help at library sessions
After 6 months of volunteering a helper can request a bursary towards formal training.
