Supporting New Initiatives

Durham Community Action provides information, advice and guidance for anyone looking to set up a new community group or charity. We can support you as you decide:

  • Why you are setting up your group
  • What your group will be doing
  • If your group is charitable or not for profit
  • What legal structure is best for you
  • How many committee members/trustees you will need
  • What to include in your governing document
  • If you need to register with the Charity Commission

Once your group is up and running Durham Community Action can also support you as you grow and develop - find out more here 

We also offer Funding Advice and Support and Training Opportunities through our community development workshops and bespoke courses.
