In this section of
The Rivers Trust website, you will find information and
guidance on starting up and running your own rivers trust.
There is a huge body of information freely available on
setting up and running a charity. In particular, the Charity
Commission has a first class website (www.charity-commission.gov.uk)
and publishes a comprehensive range of very readable guides
and information regarding charities in general. However,
because the Charity Commission has to cater for all charities
of every size, type and form, there is sometimes difficulty
in filtering out aspects of greatest relevance to river
trusts. This section is designed to address this
difficulty, and is intended to complement, not replace,
the Charity Commission’s guides and the overriding
laws and regulations relating to charities.
