What is the finance forum?
WYCAS hosts a regular session for service users to get together to discuss finance and accounting issues of common concern and share examples of good practice.
The forum is a good opportunity for informal networking with colleagues from other community and voluntary sector organisations who are experiencing similar practical challenges.
Sessions are informal and refreshments are provided. Typically between 10-15 people attend each meeting.
What subjects do you cover?
Topics are picked by service users themselves. Recent meetings have covered:
- Insurance - with a talk from a guest speaker
- Financial procedures - 'bring your own' and share session
- Gift Aid - developments and update
- Presenting financial and management information effectively
Where and how often do you meet?
We hold the forum every quarter at Bradford CVS 19/25 Sunbridge Road. Meeting dates are arranged up to a year in advance. Details are on our training page.
What is the cost?
There is no cost. The sessions are FREE.
