Starting a new charity or voluntary group can be daunting, but we’re here to help every step of the way. We can help you with many aspects of setting up including finance and funding, charity law, AGMs, working with trustees, health and safety, business planning and more.

Our experienced team can offer advice, practical support and useful materials including:

  • Our 'Getting Started' pack, which takes you through every stage of starting your new group
  • Free factsheets on topics such as employing people, financial controls and essential responsibilities of the board
  • A bank of example policies and procedures - contact Steve Place (details below) to request copies of these
  • Face-to-face expert advice and guidance, either at our offices in Poole or Boscombe, or we can come to you. This service is limited to five hours for non-members, so why not become a member and have unlimited access to our expert advice.

For more information on any of the above please contact Steve Place on 01202 466130 or email him at [email protected]
