‘Route map’ to choosing a structure

From: www.resourcecentre.org.uk

If you are setting up a community group, it will involve a decision about which legal structure to choose.

The options can be confusing, but you should be guided by how you want to run the group and what you want to do.

This ‘route map’ tool asks key questions about this, and will make suggestions on suitable structure based on your answers.

On the same site,  you can also find a list and description of all the possible structures for not-for-profit groups.
