Forming a Charity
Our expert charity solicitors can advise on all aspects of charity formation and registration. To start with, is your organisation capable of being a charity? Can you demonstrate it has exclusively charitable purposes? Careful consideration needs to be given to the type of charity structure appropriate to the needs of your organisation, for example is the organisation going to be incorporated or unincorporated.
We can guide you through the appointment of trustees, the ‘public benefit’ requirement which all organisations with charitable status must be able to demonstrate, and when registration with the Charity Commission is necessary.
Our team of charity solicitors can draft your charity’s governing document, its ‘objects’ (charitable purpose) and can deal with the registration process from start to finish.
