Community Benefit Society

The Govanhill Baths Community Benefit Society is a charitable community benefit society registered in 2017 under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act, with the Financial Conduct Authority (registration number: 7621). The Society is a democratic community-owned social enterprise.

We have exclusively charitable objects and a charitable asset lock, preventing members from making a capital gain by selling or closing the business for a profit. Therefore, the Baths will never be able to become privately owned and taken out of community ownership. Govanhill Baths is run by a Board of Directors, who will be elected each year by our Members.
