Are you paying too much for your accountancy services? Do you need help?

Source By: Hackney CVS

Many organisations in the borough used to receive cheap accountancy support from the Community Accountancy Project in Hackney but due to a range of tragic circumstances over the last few years this organisation is no longer in a position to provide a service.

  • Is your organisation paying too much money for accountancy services with private accountants?

  • Do you need specific training on financial management, bookkeeping, annual returns, budgeting and finance planning ,etc.. ?

Recognising that many organisations still need support with their accounting, particularly their end of year accounts, we are holding a joint consultation with another community accountancy service, The Local Accountancy Project, to hear your views about the above matters and use your input to shape our future plans and strategic direction.

The Local Accountancy Project, LAP, was established in July 1986 as a registered charity to address the fact that many small voluntary and community sector organisations including faith groups have difficulties in managing their finances. More info can be found on their webiste:

CEOs & Trustees event (Digital Leadership)

Source By: Hackney CVS

What does digital mean for you? Is it the nuts and bolts of having a website, sending an email or taking a donation online? What about IT security? GDPR and keeping people safe? Choosing IT systems? Is it key to how you deliver your social impact?


Board members and CEOs face some tough decisions. Resources are tight and it’s hard to know what to prioritise. It’s also hard to make sound strategic choices when digital isn’t your day job. However, digital offers a big opportunity to increase the impact of your work, be more collaborative and secure funding. In fact, The Lloyds Business Digital Index reveals that highly digitally capable charities are twice as likely to save time, and ten times as likely to save money.

In this interactive, thought provoking event we'll use the principles of the recently launched UK Charity Digital Code of Practice to explore how small charity leaders can develop their organisation’s digital capability. You’ll discover some new ways of working and ideas and resources to take back to your board or your teams.

You do not need to be a digital trustee, have specific knowledge about digital or be taking a lead on digital / IT / technology to take part in this event. This is for all leaders who are concerned about the management and sustainability of their organisations.
