If you can get, as a beginner, past some of the language – then this free download is a great resource for helping you think clearly about projects, how they are delivered and how they are reported about when finished. If you are expert, this is still a great resource too.
PIAB – we recommend it.

After working closely with the Charity Commission our board has now achieved charitable status for the Sandringham Enterprise Centre (SEC).
This important development means that we can begin the work of raising money to develop services in our Centre, to work with individuals and groups to raise funds for their projects and develop a sustainable social enterprise model for delivery of the work of the Centre.
Our objects as a charity are given below…
To further or benefit the residents of Marham and the neighbourhood, without distinction of sex, sexual orientation, race or of political, religious or other opinions by associating together the said residents and the local authorities, voluntary and other organisations in a common effort to advance education and to provide facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation leisure time occupation with the objective of improving the conditions of life for the residents.
In furtherance of these objects but not otherwise, the trustees shall have power:
To establish or secure the establishment of a community centre and to maintain or manage or co-operate with any statutory authority in the maintenance and management of such a centre for activities promoted by the charity in furtherance of the above objects.
What does all this mean?
As volunteers, using our energy and commitment, this means that we will work together to develop our Centre, bringing forward new things, but keeping and supporting existing groups and services too.
As your local charity – supporting each other in difficult times and creating as many broad smiles as possible whenever we can.

Finding-out is fun – it can just change your view of history too!
