Share this post


Thinking about setting up your own not for profit? Not sure which structure would best suit you, or how to go about registering? This is the first session in a series of two on creating a not-for-profit organisation.

About this event

Are you are thinking about setting up a new not-for-profit organisation? Or perhaps you are running a small charity and are now considering formalising, but are not sure where to start? If so, then this session is for you.

In this one-hour online Zoom session we will cover:

  • The key questions you must ask yourself to decide which type of charity or CIC would suit you best
  • An introduction to and the pros and cons of the various types
  • Where you can go for help and support

Those attending will be issued with a resource pack of toolkits that enable anyone to create their own charity, or CIC, as well as others on key topics, such as registering for Gift Aid, fundraising and opening a bank account.
