Are you thinking about starting your own not for profit organisation but unsure of what the first steps should be? Having the right organisational structure is vitally important. Many organisations are formed in a rush and then encounter problems with operations, governance, or funding. This workshop will assist you in making the best choices for you and give you a solid basis with which to launch your new or newish organisation.

Having a clear idea of what you want to do, what your ambitions are and how you expect to be funded is worth thinking through first. There are several organisational structures to choose from, that will align your strategic aims.

This workshop will assist you with thinking through your long term aims. We will also look at issues such as control, governance, scalability, and very importantly funding options.

Learning outcomes
By the end of the course those attending will:

  • have a clear understanding of the various organisational structures and how they impact on strategy, control, and funding.
  • be able to decide what legal structure is appropriate to their needs
  • know how to take the steps required to establish the structure.
