Starting a New Voluntary and Community Group

There’s a lot to consider when setting up a new Voluntary and Community Group, Social Enterprise or Registered Charity in Staffordshire.

Many questions need to be addressed such as:

  • What is the best legal structure for our group?
  • Who do we need to involve?
  • What governing document should we use?
  • Should we open a bank account straight away?
  • How do we know we are addressing a real need?
  • What are our aims and objectives?

VAST’s experienced Engagement Team are on hand to provide support and will guide you through the process of starting a new Voluntary and Community Group, Social Enterprise or Registered Charity in Staffordshire. Click here to take a look at all Support Services available.
