Legal essentials for small charities: which documents do you need?

Our document finding tool will help you to pinpoint exactly what legal essentials your charity needs. Many of the documents you’ll need are available here on Get Legal, but we’ve also included links to external resources, to help ensure your charity stays compliant.
