Do you hold a senior role in a small voluntary organisation (turnover less than £1.5m) that provides women-specific support in the criminal justice system?
Would you like to increase your knowledge and expertise around broadening your organisation’s income base and developing a strategy for sustainability?
Aimed at senior level executives of small charities, this online training supports participants to develop their understanding of the different types of income available to them as leaders, and how to make strategic decisions about which to pursue, in line with their organisational strategy, and their values. It also looks at leading change and avoiding ‘the race to the bottom’ for income. You will learn more about the key concepts behind a full cost methodology.
The session will enable participants to:
- Understand the different income streams available, and the options open to their organisation
- Make strategic fundraising choices that support their organisation and its values
- Explore a full cost recovery model in their own organisation
- Be confident about the value of their work, and how to present this to different funders
- Build internal support for a sustainable approach to income generation, and know how to make change happen
- Explore approaches to leading change and overcoming barriers.
The Ministry of Justice have funded places for small, specialist women’s organisations that are set-up to work with women and offer support to those in the criminal justice system, with a focus on capacity building and sustainable development in order to help to strengthen the women’s specialist offer and support implementation of the Female Offender Strategy.
This course is part of a programme of training and support offered to small voluntary organisations that are set up to provide gender-specific support to women.
Clinks aims to strengthen the sector by helping organisations to develop a more varied funding portfolio; support improvements in building the evidence base; engage a diverse group of women who reflect the local population, creating improvements in equality through improved practice; and explore effective service user involvement for women.
The course is delivered by Leah Selinger, a trainer with over 17 years of experience as a fundraiser and senior manager in the voluntary sector. She has supported charities to raise income from both public agencies and private donors and organisations. Leah runs her own independent consultancy and is NCVO associate consultant.
