Does your group need advice and support?

We work with local groups and organisations to identify what they need so they can start or continue their vital work supporting their communities.

Support at all stages


Whether it’s help setting up a new group, guidance in the first few months or a one-off query from an established organisation, we are available to provide support on issues that are key to the day-to-day running of your community group or organisation

We offer guidance and advice on areas including:

  • Governance and legal structures

  • Charitable status registration

  • Constitutions & community interest statements

  • Committee support

  • Creating processes, policies and procedures


Tailored to your needs


We assess the needs of the organisation and provide the support required. This varies from signposting and sharing online resources, to providing the full services offered by SIP including training opportunities and grants support.


Whatever the need, we’re here to help.
