Managing Money

It can really help your group to run smoothly if the financial side of things is well managed and carefully looked after. It is your whole group’s responsibility to do this – it’s important not to just leave it up to just one person.

This section provides information to help your group to take shared responsibility for the finances. It outlines why it is important to be well organised about keeping track of your group’s money, and suggests strategies to help you do this. It also contains information about how to budget and plan for the future.
