Free WYCAS Finance Forum for Calderdale Groups – Tuesday June 30

Tuesday 30th June, 12-2pm

Hosted over Zoom, the Forum will be led by WYCAS’ Chief Executive, Amanda Peters, with Helen Galvin, Community Accountant for Calderdale.

If you are involved in organising the finances in your organisation (as a volunteer or a paid worker) we’re guessing you will have had a tough couple of months….

COVID-19 and lockdown may have meant an increase in demand for your charity’s services, or having to deal with closing your premises entirely. You may have been furloughing staff, negotiating rent, applying for emergency funding, looking at the implications for cashflow, and working out how you get cheques signed if your trustees are all shielding?

If you’d like a chance to share some of your experiences over the last few months, as well as discuss any current issues or problems, you are very welcome to join us.

Log in information will be emailed to you one week prior to the event.
