Charity Support

Charities and voluntary groups - at the heart of our communities

Setting up and running a charity or voluntary group

Engage has extensive experience in helping groups to set up and operate charities/voluntary groups. Advice can be on a range of topics including governance, policies, charitable status and funding; and is tailored to the specific needs of your group.

Funding sources and grant applications

In particular, identifying and accessing funding sources is a key aspect of developing charity or voluntary groups. With literally thousands of grant-making trusts in England & Wales, finding potential funding sources and preparing successful applications can be a rather daunting experience. However, Engage has considerable experience in this field, having supported local groups in securing funding totalling well over £500,000 and may well be able to help the development of your group.
