Starting a new group can be daunting with various challenges and W3RT CVS is keen to support the formation of new groups. Whether you would like to set up as a registered charity, a Community Interest Company (CIC) or in another form, W3RT CVS can provide you with the information, resources and support you need to be able to set up a new voluntary sector organisation.  

Our range of support includes: 

  • Guidance to set up a new group 
  • Choosing the right structure for your group 
  • Guidance on the roles and responsibilities of trustees 
  • Information on appropriate policies and procedures 

Voluntary Partnership Agreements

W3RT CVS can offer a Volunteer Partnership Agreement with groups or individuals who want to carry out charitable activities within Watford, but aren’t ready to set up as a recognised legal entity. This service is free and puts in place a system of support to ensure you operate legally and under a formal charity structure. 

This is usually a fixed term arrangement and includes "one-off" community events.
