Starting a Charity

It’s one of the most rewarding and challenging things people can do, but starting a charity is not as easy as collecting money and making a difference.

Here are a few helpful hints and tips for you to consider when you are thinking about setting up your Charity.

  • Is your campaign local or National?
  • Are there other local, similar types of Charities that maybe you could collaborate with?
  • What type of charity structure it will have?
  • How clear is your message / purpose?
  • Who will be your trustees & what will the actively bring to your charity?
  • How will you fund your charity?
  • Who is your target market for donations?
  • Exactly how will the money be used?
  • Usually, you must register with the Charity Commission if your charity is based in England or Wales and has over £5,000 income per year.
  • If your charity is a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) it must register whatever its income.

For more information the Charities Commission is a great resource;
