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).
