Diversifying Your Income – Building sustainability for Moray

5 April 2013

A one-day training open to organisations and individuals working in the Third Sector and community engagement.

The Findhorn Foundation and tsiMORAY are working together to bring valuable training opportunities to Moray in an innovative and creative way.

Thanks to funding from Awards for All and Moray LEADER, the Findhorn Foundation has been working for the last 12 months on their Connecting Moray project. This project uses the internet to stream live event content straight to your home or office. It is an ideal way for those who cannot travel or have access to transport to take part in local events and trainings from the comfort of their own home.

As part of this project, the Foundation is partnering with tsiMORAY to bring their day-long training on Diversifying Your Income to Moray using nationally recognised trainers. The training is open to all organisations and individuals that work in the Third Sector and community engagement including social enterprises.

The trainer is Pam Judson who has been working as a trainer, consultant and fundraiser for a wide range of organisations in the voluntary sector for over 20 years. She works with management committees, individuals and staff to strengthen fundraising capacity by training in fundraising techniques, assisting with strategic plans, supporting the creation of proposals to funders as well as researching new streams of funding.

Fabio Villani Chief Officer of tsiMORAY said, “In these difficult economic times it is easy to see how Third Sector organisations – community groups, voluntary organisations and social enterprises – can struggle to remain financially sustainable. Providing this training at an affordable rate with such a skilled and experienced trainer as Pam will give many people the opportunity to further develop the fundraising tools at their disposal and fulfil their potential.” He continued, “By also offering this training online we are ensuring that those who are in the most rural parts of Moray have an opportunity to participate.”

The training takes place on Friday 5th April at Horizon Scotland, Forres, from 9.30 a.m. – 4.30 p.m. and costs £15.00 per person including course materials, lunch and refreshments. Or you can access it live online for a fee of £5 to cover administration and course materials.

To register please click here or call tsiMORAY on 01343 541 713 for a booking form.

The training follows Moray Council’s event on the 4th April and complements the information and activities provided on that day. Together we can ensure that the Third Sector in Moray is well equipped and prepared for the challenges ahead as we work in partnership to support the communities of Moray.
