Setting up a youth organisation

On this page


Our guide provides information about setting up and governing an organisation which is either run by, involving or providing services to youth.

The guide considers:

  • can you have 'youth' members and committee members?
  • should you consider using a memorandum of understanding or auspicing agreement?
  • can your organisation be a registered charity and access tax concessions?
  • what legal duties apply to youth-led governing bodies?
  • what other laws apply to youth organisations?
