Resolving problems, finding solutions – VAC in Action

Supporting local charities

Our Funding Advice and Group Support Officer has successfully completed support to a local group to register as a charity.  This was a group whose original application had been prepared by a solicitor which the Charity Commission had refused.  We were able to work with them to revise their governing document, put in place updated policies and rework their objects which has allowed them to meet the Commission’s requirements.

We’re now looking at how we can support them with recruiting volunteers to support their supplementary education activities through our Volunteer Centre and supported volunteering projects.
