Partnership budget and finances workshop

In the interests of developing partnerships, we will also be running a workshop after the main event on finances in joint projects and/or partnership. This will be a two-hour workshop after the main event to support any organisations either working in a partnership or interested in developing a partnership and wanting to know more about financial management, income diversification and budgeting. This workshop is free to attend, please indicate when you book for the main event if you would also like to stay and attend the finance workshop. This workshop can also be booked as a stand-alone booking.

The Ascent Project funded by London Councils is a partnership project, run by the London Violence against Women and Girls (VAWG) Consortium that delivers a range of front-line services for survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
