Structures used by voluntary and community groups

From: BCM

You may decide that you wish your community or voluntary group to have a formal legal structure. Or maybe running it as an unincorporated association works just fine.

Why might our group need to have a legal structure?

A legal structure allows your group to define what it does and who it helps.

It is also required to open a community bank account and apply for funding.

We have outlined some of the most common structures for community groups in this table.

BCM can help you to have a conversation about each of the different choices. Just get in touch.
