Some Guidelines on Getting a Charity registered with the Charities Commission.

(people wishing to start a Registered Charity outside Britain should seek advice from a solicitor, etc)

What you need to Know

Although PUP is a Registered Charity we believe in keeping the charity small and encouraging other groups to be registered and to stay small too. PUP and many of the other small groups we are in contact with are all run by volunteers. There are many large charities that do marvellous work but in some cases money & wages, etc can come before the needs that the charity was started up for in the first place. PUP had an excellent solicitor to do the work involved in making PUP a registered charity; the solicitor gave very good and wise advise too.

Some charities in Britain get help to become a Registered via a local council for voluntary services - most big cities have such groups. Our advice would be that once help from such a group is given, it might be best to let a solicitor look at the details, before they are sent to the Charities Commission, for consideration regarding making the charity registered.

Our solicitor advised us to have an uneven number of trustees - in case a 'casting vote' was needed in making a decision. So 3 would be the minimum, and the solicitor said 7 was a good number. He said always to be careful to get honest, caring and reliable trustees.

Always remember to put your registered charity number on all letterheads, etc.
