With funding for organisations becoming increasingly difficult it is important to keep up to date with the best ways of financing your organisation. That is why 32 organisations have already joined the South Nottinghamshire Alliance Business Doorstep Programme. At the end of the programme organisations taking part should have a much better understanding of the way business works and also take practical steps towards making their organisation more business minded. They will:-
• Be using important tools and tips for working with even the smallest of local businesses in their area – in many cases based on the same street.
• Have some examples of the things businesses do which could benefit their operation.
• Be making good links and connections with organisations that support the voluntary and community sector in their area to help strengthen what they are currently doing.
• Have the chance to work out where their organisation is now in terms of both relationships with the business community and the broader financial and organisational health of your group.
In addition, over the coming months the organisations will be able to take advantage of professional support in delivering their own action plan and share their successes.
If you are not interested yourself, but know someone who might be then please pass this on, thank you very much.
