New guides to setting up and registering a charity

In June 2014 The Charity Commission published revised guidance on setting up and registering a charity. It suggests alternatives to creating a new charity; includes step-by-step guide to setting up a new charity and explains the registration process.

The new guidance my be of particular use to those looking at AIM’s recently published Success Guide – Successfully Starting a New Museum.

Their press release states:

The Charity Commission has published revised guidance on setting up and registering a charity. The core guidance on How to set up a charity (CC21a) is designed as a practical and concise “how-to” guide, broken down into seven steps (see notes to editors). The core document is accompanied by more detailed guidance on writing charitable purposes, choosing a charity name, recruiting trustees and applying to register.

The Commission has also published revised guidance on Charity types: how to choose a structure (CC22a) and on How to write your governing document (CC22b).

The Commission hopes the user-friendly format will encourage people to think carefully before setting up a charity; the guidance suggests alternatives to creating a new charity, such as volunteering for an existing charity, setting up a named donor fund with a Community Foundation or establishing a charitable trust with the Charities Aid Foundation.
