5 top tips for successful funding bids

Finding funding for your voluntary group or organisation or community project isn’t easy.  Here are five easy-to-understand top tips to bear in mind… 

Trust matters - how the public sees charities

‘Trust matters.’ The first two words in the introduction to the Charity Commission’s report ‘Trust in Charities’.   In the light of the emergence of corruption and scandal in some large national and international charities, many managers and staff in the third sector are rightly concerned about how the public views them and the way they work.

Meeting Charity Reporting Requirements

The Fundraising Regulator has found that only 40% of charities’ annual reports met reporting requirements in the Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Act 2016. 

What's so hard about being a trustee then?

Here at CAN we’re often asked to advise on the duties and responsibilities of being a trustee.  People are often understandably confused about what being a trustee really involves and a good deal of our governance work entails resolving this for them.

Save on energy bills with Big Switch and Save

People sometimes get a little nervous about switching energy providers – even with the prospect of making considerable savings on their electricity and gas bills. In King’s Lynn and across West Norfolk, the Borough Council in partnership with CAN offers a collective scheme which takes the worry out of choosing the right provider.

What's happening at your village hall or community venue?

There are around 10,000 village and community halls across England. They’re key elements in local communities, providing a space for social events, fitness sessions, education and a host of other benefits. Around 450 such venues can be found across Norfolk, and at CAN we’re out there helping many of them with advice on funding, governance, project management and trustee training.
