Considered having your training programme Quality Endorsed?

If you are an organisation delivering bespoke training which falls outside of the regulated qualifications market you may be interested in having your training quality endorsed by an awarding body with a ‘mark of trust’.  External quality endorsement allows you the flexibility to develop training and development programmes that meet the needs of your staff, volunteers or service whilst maintaining high standards of delivery.

Getting Started with Legacy Fundraising

A legacy gift will often be the largest single donation a supporter will ever make. Legacies provide around £1.9 billion income for charities every year and the legacy market is experiencing strong growth. All charities no matter how large or small should consider how they can build a legacy income stream into their charity’s funding mix. Understanding why people make such gifts, and how to handle what is often a simultaneously sensitive and daunting topic, will help you tap into this source of funds and boost your charity’s income.

Next week, Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet will agree its Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS) which outlines its expected financial position for the coming years. It’s essentially a budget, though in recent years it has become synonymous with a list of savings that need to be made. The years ahead are no different and immediately the county council is planning on the basis of needing to make around £35 million of savings in each of the next few years.
