CRIN was established in 1995 and was hosted by Save the Children UK until 2008. In the same year CRIN was officially registered as an independent not-for-profit organisation in the United Kingdom and is regulated by Companies House (Company Limited by Guarantee No 6653398) and the Charity Commission (Charity No 1125925).

Structure of CRIN

CRIN consists of a board of trustees, called the CRIN Council, a Director and a team of staff. The Council meets regularly throughout the year and includes a Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer, elected by the Council. The Council oversees the financial situation and general direction of CRIN’s work. The Director is responsible for the day-to-day operations of CRIN and reports to the Council on the organisation’s progress.
