New free legal resource for civil society start ups
Info from BECON...
Free online reference tool was launched on 7th July offering a helping hand for anyone looking to set up a charity, social enterprise or co-operative.
Get Legal www.getlegal.org.uk provides clear guidance and information about legal structures for individuals, organisations and advisors.
The resource has been created by NCVO and leading law firm Bates, Wells and Braithwaite (BWB).
The website demystifies legal and governance terms and helps users to decide what structure will work best for them and find the form that fits their mission and vision.
The resources section of the site also contains case studies and information on where to go for further advice and support.
Get Legal’s bespoke decision tool helps people to 'find the form that fits', by asking a series of simple questions about their organisation and providing links to help and resources along the way.

It has been developed in partnership with CSC, ACEVO, Cooperatives UK and the Leadership and Governance National Support Services.
