The CCA had financial difficulties - like many charities - but it certainly did not need to close down. A smaller organization with three or four part time staff rather than two full time and three path time staff could have been sustainable and continue a significant amount of output of the organisation. However, the Board did not want to consider this approach. At a meeting in July 2009, with a small number of directors present, despite being urged repeatedly to at least consider down-sizing the organisation, rather than closing it, the Board refused. The Board never explained why it took this decision
Following this meeting, the Executive Director resigned. Three months later the company went into liquidation
Whilst views inevitably differ, it is pretty clear that the CCA could easily have continued had the Board decided on a different approach.
