Is Your Charity Charitable?
So the question remains, is your charity charitable? If you can show that the objective of your charity is to fulfil one of those purposes set out by the Charities Act 2006 and that those objectives are for the benefit of the public, then you will satisfy the criteria and be able to properly register your charity with the Charity Commission.
Of course, this is just one of the factors involved in starting a charity. You also need to use the right charitable vessel, draw up the necessary clauses to ensure there will be no profit distribution and assets will be properly handled if the charity is ever dissolved.
You can find out more about all these things and more by taking a look at our page how to start a charity.
