  7. 7. Some questions raised (I don’t have answers): - When does a regional charity become global? How does this change their social strategy? - At what point does UK_WBR become the voice of the UK organisation and not just me as an individual? - As we grow our organisations how much independence do you want regional groups to wield? And what are the opportunities and challenges?
