Operating a charity and reporting: sources of support and guidance
We recommend the trustees read our guidance on the trustee role and board.
Registration is just the first stage of a potentially long journey for many charities. Our website has a huge amount of specialist advice and guidance to help a charity run as effectively as possible and assist in the most common areas that affect charities.
Use the Managing your charity section of our website to notify us of any changes and comply with legal obligations; whether it is filing accounts or completing the Annual Return, changing the governing document or alerting us to a serious incident.
This is a massive step forward for Prenton RUFC and the development of the Prenton RUFC and Community Hub; whereby the development committee can now register to private sector funding to assist with our forth coming re-generation of club facilities for the great good of the membership and the community.
Full details and what it means for Prenton RUFC will be announced at the Club's AGM on Friday 9th July 2021.
