Need some help with your finances? We provide support for voluntary groups through improving their financial skills, knowledge and practice. The programme offers workshops, 1-2-1 surgeries, large networking events, access to financial toolkits, fact-sheets and more.
Thanks to the generous funding of the City Bridge Trust, Aston-Mansfield are offering this programme free of charge. We will be delivering these activities in eight local places, but we can also visit you and/ or your team at a suitable place.
