Why will this training be useful to me?

We all know that ‘diversifying income’ is a good thing to do. Struggling to cover costs, on short-term funding cycles means you can’t plan well or are acutely aware of the risk of losing your main funder.

But it is difficult to know where to start, what the options are, or how to find the time to do it.

What outcomes can you expect to achieve if you attend this session

– The reality of charity business models – their challenges and opportunities

– The foundations you need to be able to bring in new income streams

– How to work out what diversification looks like for your charity

– Managing expectations
