Now-u is a community interest company looking to gain charitable status. We are seeking an experienced and qualified legal professional, with specific charity sector experience, to assist with the process of charity incorporation.

What will you be doing?

We would be looking for your expertise to advise us of the process and the best approach we should take in regard to our charitable objectives and legal obligations. You would ideally be able to volunteer for up to 5 hours a week.

What are we looking for?

You should have proven experience in charity law, governance and good practice.

What difference will you make?

This is an opportunity to provide strategic legal advice to a start-up social impact organisation that we hope could really make a positive difference in the world. This October, our campaigns are: i) promoting sustainable eating habits in the UK, ii) improving global access to menstrual health and hygiene, and  iii) supporting LGBTQ+ rights around the world.

What's in it for the volunteer?

You would become part of a small friendly volunteer team who would love to work collaboratively.
