Experienced and affordable

We have a track record of helping to establish successful charities and social enterprises across the North East so there's very little we don't know about running a community organisation and how to turn a good idea into a thriving project. Our experience and understanding of the Charity Commission’s approach to registrations means we can ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.

Connected Voice is committed to developing and empowering voluntary, community and social enterprises in the North East and our prices reflect this. We know that registering or converting an organisation can be a costly process when done through a law firm so we’ve developed a package of affordable support to get you started.

We can support you with:

  • Setting up a Charitable Incorporated Organisation
  • Setting up a Charitable Company
  • Setting up a Community Interest Company
  • Conversion to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation

Having Connected Voice's support in applying to the Charity Commission to transfer Surface Area Dance Theatre from a CIC to a CIO has proven essential. At every step in the application process, I received guidance, steering and crucial advice. The service provided by skilled professionals offered reassurance, friendliness, an appreciation of scheduling and attention to detail.
