About

is the trading name of YUJ CIC, an independently regulated Community Interest Company limited by shares. This offers public confidence in the organisation's integrity and in its ability to deliver on its promises to the community, whilst avoiding the regulatory limitations of a charity.

Every year the company has to submit an annual report to a public register along with its annual company accounts and satisfy a community interest test showing its activities somehow contribute towards benefiting the community and that it is engaging appropriately with stakeholders in carrying out its purposes. Party political activities are not allowed.

An asset lock also ensures that the assets and profits of the company are dedicated to the benefit of the community and not for rewarding shareholders and directors. A dividend cap also ensures shareholders sharing in the success of the CIC do not adversely deplete the assets of the company while also discouraging aggresive takeovers and venture capitalists from investing.

About the icon

The demand was for an icon for a web app, an open data web portal, a website and for social networks.

Using the 'informative' font, the icon uses the same font as the logo, but the characters have been moved to overlap with each other and produce a new result.

The icon contains adaptions of all the letters in arranged as two human figures embracing each other, a symbol representing the aim to mutually combine technological innovation with a commitment to providing public benefit rather than private advantages.
