Funding and financial sustainability are a priority for all voluntary and community organisations regardless of whether you are just starting out or have been going for a number of years.

To make sure you can continue to serve your beneficiaries, you need to plan how to fund your activities for current and future projects, and to do this through a range of funding sources as this will help your organisation to be more resilient.
