Workshops for Community Groups
Generating an income for your group
Community groups and non-profits face a real challenge in making enough income to fund their work. You may have become reliant on grant funding and are finding it harder to get. The trainer will help you look at other ways your group could generate income particularly if your service or activities have a unique selling point.

Workshops can be arranged for small groups, held at our offices or at a location of your choice. We are happy to design a workshop to meet your specific needs. Contact us for more information or download our leaflet.
