The South East Rural Community Councils
I have taken this third sector organisation as an example.
The South East Rural Community Councils is registered as a charity No 1091609 and proclaims ...
"The South East Rural Community Councils (SERCC) is the consortia organisation for the Rural Community Action Network, (RCAN) in the South East. RCAN is a national network of charities that support and work with people living in rural areas across the whole of England, to keep their villages and communities thriving and sustainable."
This organisations web site is registered at
Astolat Coniers Way New Inn Lane Guildford Surrey GU4 7HL United Kingdom.
The charity accounts for 2009 state that its funds come mainly from SEEDA (EU funded Quango), ACre (Third Sector), capacity builders (EU/cabinet office organisation),Government Office of the South East (Eu regional office) and Community Development Foundation (Third Sector).
If you google the address above up pops many other third sector organisations all operating from the same office.
On and on it goes this small office block (look it up on google earth street view) seems to house 100s of third sector organisations each funding each other and pulling in funds ultimately from the EU.
Guildford has always been a shithole but it seems that the EU has chosen it for its command and control centre for the its designated South East Region.
