Are you considering starting up a not-for-profit organisation? Come and join Community Southwark in this interactive session which will be an introduction to the most important things you need to think about and plan when setting up a new organisation. This workshop is a great opportunity for you to meet others going through the same process as you and learn more about what is involved in setting up a non profit organisation.

This session will aim to help attendees to:

  • Identify the need for their organisation, and its aims

  • Understand the voluntary and community sector concept of non-profit, different organisational/legal structures, and where your organisation fits

  • Link your activities to your aims and objectives

  • Identify next steps.


Who should attend?

This workshop is suitable for people who wish to set up a not-for-profit (eg. community group, a charity or a social enterprise) organisation that will provide services, activities or products to the people of Southwark and surrounding boroughs.

We encourage you to attend with your colleagues.

Pre-course work: We require you to complete out initial assessment questionnaire before attending the workshop. This asks a few questions about your plans and ideas. It will enable the trainer to tailor the workshop to your needs.

After the workshop we will send you a briefing of further reading and resources to help you develop your organisation
