Setting up a new Group

When you are thinking about setting up a new group, it can be easy to get bogged down worrying about paperwork and formalities. Equally, it can cause problems later if you don’t put a few basic things in place to make sure your group is set up in a way that will work best for you.

This section provides advice about getting people involved in your group, deciding the purpose of your group, and agreeing a set of rules or principles that will govern your group. It provides practical information about things you may need to do, such as open a bank account and allocate roles in the group.

It also includes information about the different legal structures that a community group or organisation can use, the pros and cons of each of these, and how to set up different types of organisation.

This sheet provides advice about choosing a bank and information about how to open an account. It also includes a list of community bank accounts.
