They have arranged the following online training courses taking place over the next few months:

  • Tuesday 29 Mar - Effective Bid Writing - Do you struggle writing successful funding bids? This session will take you through the key practical steps in describing the essential elements of your project, to tell funders what they need to know.

  • Tuesday 5 Apr - Financial Reporting and Making your Annual Return - Its sometimes hard  to find your way through the Charity Commission requirements to file annual accounts, draft a Trustee’s annual Report and make an Annual Return. This workshop will look at what type of accounts you need to have and who needs to examine them. It will also consider what should be included in the Trustee report.

  • Tuesday 26 Apr - Governance: what’s the right structure? - There is a wide range of not for profit structures ranging from registered charities to community interest companies. They all have specific benefits, and some drawbacks.  This session will look at the main structures, and explain the benefits and issues associated with each of them.

They now offer all their training online. As they are not having to pay for venues they are passing that saving on to you, 

For the coming year the cost of workshops will be £6.50, or for those organisations that have paid a membership subscription to Community Matters the price will be £5.00.
