Our Manifesto for a thriving civil society
We believe in Jersey’s potential to be a benchmark for a modern compassionate community. At the heart of this are our charities and community groups and those people who give up their time, energy and expertise to help others. In our island community we rely heavily on the services of our charities; the social benefits of voluntary action are well known and the sector contributes much to the economy as employers, service providers, and early interventionists that save tax payers millions of pounds. It is essential, therefore, that the development of civil society is high on the agenda of every States Member. We have some thoughts on why it's time for a Civil Society Minister within the States.Read our Manifesto
The register of Jersey charities opened on 1st May 2018. Any organisation wishing to become a charity or retain its charity status, raise funds from the general public, and receive tax exemptions will need to pass the 'charity test' - that is proving you have charitable purpose and deliver a public benefit. You will need to provide a copy of your constitution or founding document, statements of your charitable purpose and the benefit you intend to deliver to the public, certain financial information and declarations about your governors (those who are responsible for the running of your organisation). Contact us if you would like any assistance in completing your application.Find out more
