Trusts

A trust is the traditional structure for a charity, adopted by many older groups.  For the trust to also be a charity, Charity Commission for Northern Ireland  must approve its purposes and activities. 

Trusts are unincorporated and do not have any independent existence in law. Therefore, the trustees are personally responsible for any debts or claims against the organisation that cannot be met out of the organisation's own resources.

Type of Organisation: Trust
