From: UK government

Six-step guide to setting up a charity.

This includes the following useful information:

  • Find trustees for your charity – you usually need at least 3.
  • Make sure the charity has ‘charitable purposes for the public benefit’.
  • Choose a name for your charity.
  • Choose a structure for your charity.
  • Create a ‘governing document’.
  • Register as a charity if your annual income is over £5,000 or if you set up a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO).
