 +Start up budget
 +During the start up process the steering group will require funds to
 +cover a range of items. Costs will depend on how much help they can
 +attract in kind. The steering group should budget to cover some or all
 +of the following items during the start up process:
 +-   ​Communication materials
 +-   ​Development officer
 +-   ​Temporary accommodation
 +-   ​Events
 +-   Legal costs
 +-   ​Recruitment
 +-   ​Consultancy and training
 +If the proposed Trust is in an area with special status, they may be
 +able to apply for funding. Otherwise the steering group will probably
 +have to fundraise costs and/or seek help in kind from a range of
 +sources. Where help is offered, it is important that the steering group
 +is able to specify what they require and maintain control over the
 +activity or materials.
 +Communications materials
 +The Materials sheet provides suggestions on what may be needed. If you
 +have to keep costs low you may be able to cope with a simple temporary
 +letterhead and some information sheets. On the other hand if you can
 +raise the funds, professional design and a higher level of presentation
 +will greatly help in fundraising and gaining support. Costs may range
 +from under a hundred pounds for DIY materials to several thousand for
 +professional design and production.
 +Development officer
 +If the steering group has to appoint a paid development officer, rather
 +than rely on someone on secondment from an existing body, salary and
 +on-costs could range from £5000 - £15,000 depending on the start up
 +period and whether it is a part or full time appointment.
 +Temporary accommodation
 +The development officer will require a base and the steering group an
 +address during start up. It may be possible to find desk space with an
 +existing organisation. Even then they may require a contribution to
 +telephone and other costs.
 +During the start up process the steering group and development officer
 +will run some workshops and seminars. Costs of accommodation and
 +catering should be budgeted.
 +Legal costs
 +Fees for advice from a solicitor specialising in Trusts, and the
 +incorporation costs, may be £1000. You should also budget for
 +negotiation of a lease, if that will arise, and advice on contracts of
 +Make allowance in the budget for the cost of advertising for staff and
 +Consultancy and training
 +The steering group may wish to budget for:
 +-   ​Specialist advice on the start up process and the bid document
 +-   ​Feasibility of projects
 +-   Team building and other training
