This simple self-assessment tool aims to help you think about your organisation's current strengths and gaps in relation to income sustainability and the potential you may have to seek social investment.

It has been developed as part of Voscur's 2020 project to support organisational sustainability through social enterprise and social investment in the south-west.

The Small Charities Coalition has launched a new tool to help people register a charity.

The new guide can be found at: https://charitysetup.org.uk and is aimed at people looking to set up a charity where turnover is initially expected to be below £150,000 per year.

The guide aims to steer users through the logistics of setting up a charity in simple steps. It does not aim to provide a full and comprehensive guide to charity law – those who are looking for this should refer to the Charity Commission of England and Wales.
