You have addresses for all those, right? They should be easy enough to find online.

The orgs are HAPI (Edinburgh), Sunderland, Manchester, Birmingham, London, AOSHUK and SH Fdn at Saint Hill, Brighton, Plymouth.

Brighton became an org in 1987. Up until that point, it was a ‘successful’ mission, with a large(ish) public and a dedicated staff.

Of course, ‘successful’ is a relative term. They never had any real money, all the staff could have earned far more money doing even basic ‘wog’ jobs, the place was a bit of a dump and they were living from hand-to-mouth just managing to pay the bills. If it was an ordinary, no-Scientology business, it would have folded long before. But, it was far more successful than any other mission at that time and, in fact, since.

So, it was pushed into becoming a fully fledged Class IV Organisation. This meant that there were certain criteria to be met regarding solvency, numbers and qualifications of staff etc. After much frantic activity, it was finally given clearance by RTC and was transmogrified into a bright, shiny new mission, thus proving the effectiveness of Hubbard’s wondrous Technology.

And then Reality set in. Undoubtedly the financial shenanigans of certain execs played a part, several of whom were booted out, but ultimately they couldn’t deliver a service that enough people were willing to pay for. It has suffered a gradual decline over the past decade or so and now they have just a skeleton crew trying to keep the place open. There are now far less staff than when it was a mission and it falls well below the requirements required of a Class V org. From what I’ve heard, several other orgs are in the same position – i.e. completely unviable.

Apart from being a good example of how Scientology doesn’t work with regard to building up viable organisations, it is very telling that the last org to be created (London doesn’t count as there was already an org there) in the UK was more than 20 years ago and this has suffered a terminal decline.

I think that neatly sums up how effective the CoS is in the real world.
