Setting Up

People talking with Connected Voice staff at the Funding Fair

I’ve got an idea and I want to set up an organisation

Is there something missing in your community? Do you have an idea about how to make a positive difference? We've been helping to establish and run successful charities and projects in Newcastle and Gateshead since 1929 so there's very little we don't know about running a community organisation and how to turn a good idea into a thriving project.

Setting up a new charity or community organisation is an exciting opportunity but it also requires a lot of work and commitment. The first step is to arrange an initial conversation or meeting with one of our Support and Development team. Call 0191 232 7445 or email to arrange a meeting so we can ask you a few questions about your project or idea.

If you would like us to provide additional support to write your governing documents, submit your application to the Charity Commission (or Companies House) and answer their queries, we offer a package of affordable support to get you started. Find out more here.
