A one day in-house programme for Community / Voluntary organisations, Local Authorities, Universities / Colleges, Health bodies and Charities.
Traditional voluntary sector funding models are no longer sustainable and are not adequate. Many voluntary sector bodies are recognising this and creating a new approach which is not just based mainly on grants.
The Work It Out! Income Generation programme helps organisations to achieve their aims by moving from dependency and grants to building a secure range of income streams and becoming fully sustainable.
To detail a ten point plan to show voluntary sector and community based organisations how they can re-focus their current operations to achieve sustainability.
To design and develop a range of new income streams, revenue generating projects and options suitable for implementing in each organisation.
To ensure that each organisation (or Department) has a clear 12 month plan for maximising income possibilities and becoming sustainable.
Each organisation leaves with a clear strategy and action plan that will enable them to implement their Sustainability strategy immediately.
'A real eye opening session! I learned so much - not just about income but how we should be building our organisation.'
'We needed to find a way forward for our organisation - and now we have a proper plan in place for 2017.'
'No one has ever detailed the income opportunities for the Voluntary sector like this before. The session was brilliant! A totally different approach to the way we had been thinking.'
'The training was a real breath of fresh air - direct, realistic and practical. We worked out exactly what we need to do.'
'I feel inspired and motivated! I believe we can make a much stronger contribution to our community now'.
'We have the excellent 10 point framework - and have started to work enthusiastically on this. Every voluntary organisation needing income should be working to this.'
The workshop can be delivered for your organisation or you can offer the programme to a group of organisations in your area (for 8 - 100 people). The workshop runs from 10am to 5pm (allowing an hour for lunch).
