Event Details

This course is ideal for anybody working in the voluntary and community sector (including social enterprises) looking to improve their confidence when dealing with finance. Over three full-day sessions we will explore theory, demonstrate practical examples and tools, and promote good practice through case studies, peer learning exercises and discussions.


We will explore the key components of finance including the role of financial management across the organisation; and the role of budgets, cashflow, management accounts and balance sheets in effective planning.

By the end of the course, you will be more confident in developing and implementing financial policies and procedures and gain a greater understanding of how to use financial data effectively.

Full details

Over three days we will explore how financial management is integral to all levels of the organisation; how decisions affect your organisation's financial performance and how they can improve your organisation's income potential.

We will demystify the jargon, explore key concepts in a practical way and help you to identify important trends and areas of concern. You will also be able to map out key financial challenges and opportunities and learn how to effectively plan and budget for them.
