Stakeholder events have been a cornerstone of our campaigning activities since our launch in 2017. The three Parliamentary debates we hosted (alongside Rebecca Pow MP) made us the first external organisation ever to bring the issue of soil health to Westminster, while our workshops enabled stakeholders from across the soils spectrum to debate key issues of principle and detail and helped foster a sense of community among our members.
The SSA is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee. We decided not to set up a charity because that would limit some activities such as campaigning on government policies. With a not-for-profit company the directors don’t benefit from profits and money raised is spent on company aims.
