Setting up a charity

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by worm-on-a-stick, Mar 15, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I’m in the throws of setting up a charity. Can anybody help direct me in the right direction for getting it set up / properly registered. I’ve heard about the charities commission but are they the right people to go to in order to set up this charity.

    All sensible suggestions welcome, either post or PM me.

    Thanks Worm.
     
  2. Hi Worm,

    The charities commission will be your best bet as they will know the ins and outs of the legislation and will be able to tell you if there is a charity with similar aims already there.

  4. The commission’s paper work to set it up is 48 pages of forms long! A long day of reading is in front of me.
