Starting Up - Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is setting up a charity the best way forward?

Setting up and running a charity is a significant responsibility and does involve a lot of work. For this reason, it is important to consider whether there may be other ways how you could achieve your charitable aims aside from setting up a new organisation. The following guidance from the Charity Commission explains some of the alternatives available to you.

Q: How do we write our governing document or constitution?
A governing document is a legal document containing information about what your charity is set up to do, how it is structured, how it will run and how it will change with time. The Charity Commission provides extensive guidance on how to choose and prepare your governing document and also provides model documents for you to use, including a small charity constitution.
