Please note: this ONLINE session is FREE to any voluntary, community or social enterprise organisation operating in East Devon. This project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund. 

  • There are several ways that a voluntary, community, or social enterprise organisation can be structured. Are you uncertain about what structure is best for your organisation?
  • Getting the right structure in place could have a significant impact on the success of your organisation!

You will leave this bitesized session with a better understanding of all the different structures and their benefits, with support to work out what one is best for you.

What will the training include?

During this session, we will be exploring the different legal structures that voluntary organisations and social enterprises can adopt. We will have guest speaker, Hannah Reynolds who will share with you some information about the structures that are available, such as Charity and CIC.

Then we will have an hour of open discussion about which one might be the most appropriate for your organisation, your group or your enterprise.

If you would like a certain question or theme to be raised, please state this when signing up via Eventbrite when prompted.

Depending on the amount of requests, we will choose a selection to focus on.

We are running these sessions to provide space for the sector to share its collective expertise, to network and for participants to return to their organisation with something helpful.
