A group of voluntary sector support bodies in Manchester has produced a series of free online factsheets about setting up and running voluntary and community sector organisations.

The factsheets have been produced by Greater Manchester Voluntary Sector Support, a group of 36 organisations, most of which are support bodies.

The documents amalgamate existing factsheets that are available to voluntary sector groups in the area and include new subject areas: financial management, registering for charitable status, insurance, loans, data protection and setting up websites.

The factsheet on financial management includes information on financial planning, cash-flow forecasts, and full cost recovery, and the factsheet that deals with registering for charitable status includes information about how to register and how to become an incorporated organisation.

Members of GMVSS include Greater Manchester Centre for Voluntary Organisation, Voluntary and Community Action Trafford, Tameside Third Sector Coalition and Bury Third Sector Development Agency.

Adrienne Hunter, consortium development officer at GMCVO, said: "A lot of our members had different factsheets; we wanted to coordinate and manage the information better."

The factsheets can be found at
