This model constitution has been prepared by the National Churches Trust, and approved by the Charity Commission, HMRC and the HLF. It is designed to include all the elements required for good sustainable management and to meet the requirements of the above organisations should you wish/need to register with them or apply for grant funding.
This model constitution is specifically designed for friends’ groups which expect to stay small (at least for the foreseeable future), and have an annual income under £5,000. The constitution is not meant for charities that own a building, employ people or intend to register with the Charity Commission (and will, therefore, need additional elements and governing documents).
