Charities can take a number of ‘models’ and ‘forms’. These models may include service providers, grant givers and membership organisations, to name a few. The forms a charity can take may include a company limited by guarantee, other company types, associations or trusts. Whatever model or form a charity takes, it must pass ‘the charity test’ in order to apply to register.
