Application for charitable status
To begin the registration process you need to apply for an account with us. We will then send you a letter containing security information; when you receive this letter you can create your account.
Once you have a charity account, you apply through this account to have your charity registered.
The steps are:
Step 1 - Apply for an account for your charity by using the button below. We will then send you security information to create your account.
Step 2 - Create your charity's account here. You will need the security information sent in our letter to you and you will need to specify a username (e-mail address) and password.
Step 3 - Login to your account to register your charity, or update your charity’s details here. You will need your charity's username (e-mail address) and password.
