Ownership and Charitable Status

We are the service delivery partner of the University of Exeter (UoE) and Falmouth University (Falmouth). We are jointly owned, 50:50, by Falmouth and UoE and in legal terms we are an exempt charitable company limited by guarantee.

Our charitable purpose is:

To advance the education of the public by providing and assisting in the provision of higher education facilities in Cornwall.

As an exempt charity, any financial surpluses that we make through commercial activities (either directly or through our subsidiary commercial company, Cornwall Plus Ltd) can only be used for our main charitable purpose.

Who are we and what do we do?

Our purpose is to help UoE and Falmouth achieve their global ambitions and to support them in providing their students with a life-changing university experience.

Our name reflects the strong link to our university partners. It also signifies the added value that we bring through the development and delivery of shared facilities and services for students and staff.

We are constantly reviewing and enhancing our services to reflect the needs of students and staff.

FX Plus is an exempt charity wholly owned by UoE and Falmouth on a 50:50 basis.

We have a Senior Executive Team, representing each directorate across FX Plus. The FX Plus Board comprises an equal number of Directors from Falmouth and UoE and other Directors as appointed by the Board.
