THE RIGHT START: Income Generation and Funding

Who should attend:

This session is aimed at those new to the world of funding or those who need a fresher.


As the voluntary sector continues to face the hardship of funding cuts it’s becoming increasingly necessary for community groups and organisations to generate and manage income from a number of sources. This session will help you identify ways to maximise your opportunities to generate additional income for your organisation and will include:

  • Basic overview of funding bids and terminology used

  • Fundraising strategies and legalities

  • Sponsorship and legacies
