Starting a group
Starting a voluntary or community group or charity gives you the opportunity to make a difference for a cause that you feel passionately about. But where to start?
VAS can help you set up your new group or charity and develop your aims, plan your activities, identify funding, advise on running your group effectively, and put you in touch with other groups or charities working in a similar area.
If you are considering starting up a new group or setting up a charity, get in touch with VAS’s Small Groups Advice Service which will help you to find the information and resources you need. This free service can help with any specific problems or questions you may have about starting up, and signpost you to other useful services and sources of information.
