Community Development

Supporting local voluntary and community groups

MSVA supports local voluntary and community groups and the communities they work with by providing information, guidance and resources to ensure that local groups, clubs and charities have all they need to start up, develop and grow.

MSVA’s Community Development Co-ordinator provides local community and voluntary organisations with practical advice, information, support and guidance about:

  • Setting up a new organisation
  • Different charity structures and registering with the Charity Commission
  • Charity law
  • Governance
  • Good practice
  • Finding funding
  • Funding applications
  • Policies and procedures

The Community Co-ordinator also runs local networking events and can put groups in touch with other organisations and local networks. Further information on networks is on our Networks and Partnerships page.
