LIVERPOOL RECONCILES1. I would like to let you know that at the last minute we managed to include Chara Trust to the list of the founding members of INISE.2. This has been thanks to the resolvement of misunderstandings between the leaders of the organisations in Liverpool.3. Chara Trust has been the organisation which contacted Barka Foundation and the one which has been organising the study visits of Merseyside-based organisations to Barka Network in Poland. The visits have borne fruit in our joint endeavors towards the establishment of INISE.4. In terms of the registration process, we have a month to go to obtain the royal authorisation according to the information from the General Office Advices.
