Starting up your new voluntary or community group

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

We have a menu of help for you including:

  • Our Getting Started Pack takes you through every stage of starting your new group
  • Our free factsheets on topics such as employing people, financial controls and essential responsibilities of the board
  • We have a bank of example policies and procedures
  • 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 [email protected]
