This page

Setting up a new charity, community group or other organisation is a top search performed on VR. This page is a stab at a checklist, with links through to further resources.


See links above, and other Management, Admin and Finance pages. You may also want to look at the checklist of policies and procedures, but don't let this overwhelm you.

We say it elsewhere: all organisations are different, and the voluntary and community sector is very diverse. We can't say do this, that and the other and you will be sorted. Hopefully the following will raise the pertinent issues, and point you to the appropriate next steps. Also find out if you have a local CVS (Councilf of Volutnary Service) or similar - see Local Contacts page.







At some point, you just need to get on with it!
