Registering your faith organisation as a charity, Leeds, 11/12 Oct

11 October 2017 - 12 October 2017

The Charity Commission, the regulator of charities in England and Wales, is running two half-day workshops for faith-based organisations, on registering your faith-based organisation as a charity.

The workshops are FREE to attend.

Topics covered

  • Registering as a charity: benefits, opportunities and legal requirements
  • Registering your faith organisation: practical steps
  • Charity Commission: how they can support you.

The purpose of these workshops is to provide advice and guidance to help you understand what you need to know about registering a faith organisation as a charity.

They are dedicated to making the workshops informative, relevant and interesting; therefore, there will be opportunities for discussion and questions throughout. Registration staff will also be on hand to answer questions and provide guidance on applying to register. Refreshments and prayer facilities will be provided.

Who should attend?

The workshop is intended for those running faith organisations, such as Churches, Temples, Mosques, Religious Centres and other faith-based organisations, which are not yet registered as charities.

It will also be beneficial for those who are looking to set up faith based organisations or organisations supporting migrant or BME communities as charities where language or cultural barriers to understanding the process may exist.

How do I sign up?

Where possible, please use the Charity Commission’s online booking system.

If you have difficulty with this, please email Tamsin or call on 0300 065 2116.

They will assist you to book on the appropriate workshop and discuss any access or dietary requirements you may have, e.g. hearing loop, food allergies etc.

Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
