Starting a Group

Starting a voluntary or community group or charity gives you the opportunity to make a difference for a cause that you feel passionately about. But where to start?

CVS can help you set up your new group or charity and develop your aims, plan your activities, identify funding, advise on running your group effectively, and put you in touch with other groups or charities working in a similar area.

If you are considering starting up a new group or setting up a charity, get in touch with our Head of Services who will help you to find the information and resources you need. This free service can help with any specific problems or questions you may have about starting up, provide advice around governance and the different legal structures available, and signpost you to other useful services and sources of information.

The Charity Commission also provides a range models and guidance in setting up and running a charity. You can find all Charity Commission guidance here.

For further information advice please contact Jayne Robinson at or call 01482 595543.
