If you’ve got an idea but aren’t sure how to get started, we offer information, advice and resources for anyone thinking of setting up a new community organisation or project. Common queries include:
- Do we need to register as a charity? What other options are there?
- What do we need to put in our constitution?
- How do we apply for funding for our project?
Whether it’s choosing the right structure, getting the governing document in place, planning a project or developing a new community venture we can help you find the resources to get things moving.
Lots of guidance, information and even template documents are available online – a few links are below to get you started. If you need help navigating this wealth of information to find what’s most relevant for your group or project please do contact us.
