Useful online resources in this section
There is a wealth of online information to support voluntary and community groups. We have listed below what we think are the most helpful resources, and those which are most likely to be kept up-to-date and fully functional. If you discover any broken links or misleading information, please let us know.
We have grouped these resources into those areas that we think are most critical, especally if you are thinking of setting up a Charity or local group, or are involved in running one.
- Setting up a new organisation/wanting to run a community activity
- Need help with Trustees and the Governance of your Organisation?

- How to recruit/work with volunteers
