Setting Up a New Organisation

Thursday 11th July, 1:15pm-4:45pm

Venue: VAC Resource Centre, Hall Street, Halifax, HX1 5AY

Trainer: Pippa Robson

The structure you choose for your group or organisation has an impact on governance, funding, and issues e.g. employing staff and managing assets.

This session explores common structures in the voluntary and community sector, including charitable and non-charitable. It will be useful for anyone starting a new group, as well as those that want to find out if their current structure is the best option.
