Hello Green Girl
There are some important things to know with these options. If you choose to be a CIC you lock your assets which is supposedly it’s advantage – but consider this in mine with what you want the organsation for.
A Charity might be set up as efficiently with the right people in place. The good thing about a Charity option is that it can transformed into a CIC if you choose to do so at a later date – I believe the same cannot be said if you want to change a CIC to a charity.
I will attach a doc that I found online to help differentiate. It is dated 2013 apologies for this but it is one of the best descriptions I have found.
Good luck it sounds like a great venture!
