Help & Advice

To help you on your journey to setting up a new voluntary or community group we have designed a user-friendly toolkit to take you through the initial stages to ensure that you have all the necessary policies and documents for example constitution, bank account, forming a committee and other policies in place. Once you have completed the initial stages and are ready to start applying for funding please email Nick - nick.pritchard@communityactionderby.org.uk, in our Development Team to arrange a meeting to discuss your funding requirements and next steps.

Please note that we no longer meet with organisations until the initial stages have been completed - this is to enable us to give you a better quality of service when we meet with you.

Our volunteer team members may be able to help you with basic enquiries and can signpost you to the relevant areas of our website.

Explore our Resources and Networks & Forums to start your journey.
