Basic finance for small charities
Good financial management is an integral part of ensuring good governance as it not only helps charity trustees to fulfil their legal duties but also helps to protect the charity from mismanagement of funds. Having robust financial procedures in place will help to improve organisational capacity and effectiveness.
The focus of this workshop will be on basic recording keeping and financial management including setting up and maintaining the books (income and expenditure ledger, petty cash); cash handling, understanding charity funds (restricted and unrestricted) and accounts and the role of the treasurer.
As we’re expecting a lot of demand for this training, we’re limiting places to one per organisation in the first instance and holding a waiting list for other interested members of the organisation.
