Setting up and advising charities

With 168,186 charities registered with the Charities Commission at the end of September 2018, it’s important you choose the right firm to help you hit the ground running when setting up a charity.

Setting up a charity can be burdensome with the complex legal and regulatory framework governing charities. It is therefore imperative you receive expert legal advice to help you to consider options and prevent any issues that might be faced in the future.

BBS are experienced in providing bespoke advice to people wanting to create a charity. We are here to provide hands on advice through each phase of the process – including drawing up a governing document, drafting charitable objects and completing the registration process with the Charity Commission.

Sometimes setting up a charity might not best suit your needs. We are also able to advise you on alternative structures such as trusts.

If you already have a charity established, but you need some guidance we are also able to provide ongoing assistance with governance matters and developments in the law.
