About this Event

This is a new session for those of you who are considering starting up a voluntary sector group or for those who are already in the process of starting a group. Regardless of what stage you are at, this session will be very beneficial in that it will provide participants with an overview of the key steps to consider going forward in order to prevent any issues from arising later. It will also give you a chance to gain feedback on what you have done already to ensure you are on the right track.

The following areas will be covered:

• Legal structures

• Steering group – to committee

• Understanding the importance of your Constitution

• Roles and responsibilities – committee & office bearers

• Working as a committee

• Finance basics

This session is essential for start-up voluntary and community organisations. In our experience it is better to cover all the basics and learning to crawl before you can walk – never run!

Your facilitators for this session are Judith Bremner and Sharon Bissett, both have around 20 years’ experience or supporting the voluntary and community sector in areas such as start-up, charity law, good governance, quality standards and many more.

**If you have a constitution already, please bring this along with you**
