Establishment & Registration of Charities

We advise on the different types of charitable structures available to you and whether you need to be registered with the Charities Commission for England & Wales. We explain the legal requirements to you in plain english and the necessary steps to establish your charity. We can assist in drafting your governing and constitutional documents.

We can assist with:

  • formation of charities;
  • registration with the Charity Commission;
  • commercial issues including contracts, employment and intellectual property;
  • leases, licences, sales and purchases of property;
  • legacy management and disputes in connection with wills;
  • other charity related issues.

Contact a member of our team to find out how we can help you.

For an organisation to be a charity, each of its purposes must be for the public benefit. The Charities Act 2011 calls this the ‘public benefit requirement’.
