Further guidance and support

The Charity Commission has created in-depth guidance on setting up a charity.

You can also find lots of useful, detailed guidance on the NCVO website, including a recording of NCVO’s setting up a charity webinar hosted in partnership with Withers LLP.

For further support, contact NCVO’s small charity helpdesk on knowhow@ncvo.org.uk, or by phone on 0207 520 2552. We also offer a range of support for small charities and voluntary organisations.

If you aren’t already a member of NCVO, you might be interested in joining to access some of the benefits we offer. Membership benefits include discounts on NCVO training and access to our member events.

We currently have over 17,000 voluntary sector organisations as members, and membership is free for smaller organisations with an annual turnover of under £30,000. Find out more about NCVO membership.
