Constitutions & Charters

All organisations need some kind of governing document. This can be a constitution or "rules". Some people would prefer to drive a nail into their skull than tackle this, but it's got to be done otherwise there's no real point of reference for the group or organisation. And in several cases it's a legal requirement.

We're hoping that community groups that become formal bodies will incorporate their democratic and inclusive ethos within their foundation documents.
