Changing gears for 2020

Our 2020 project has reached its half-way point, so we're planning to use the December network meeting to review what's happened so far - and plan how best to use the second half of the project in the new year.

Here's an outline of the session on Tuesday:

Date/Time: 
Tuesday, 10 December, 2019 - 10:00 to 12:30

A business plan that people want to buy into

Is your business plan inward-looking or outward-focused? Does it explain what you do internally so it's clear to the team, or the impact you create in the community so it's clear to investors and funders? (Or both?)

Is it ambitious but not unrealistic? Is it practical but not pedestrian?

This session will focus on what an investable business plan really looks like.

(Further details to follow.)

Date/Time: 
Thursday, 19 September, 2019 - 10:00 to 12:30

Measuring and explaining your social impact

How do you currently articulate your intended social impact to stakeholders and funders? How do you measure and evidence that impact to demonstrate the effectiveness of what you do?

This session will focus on practical ways to define, measure and report your social impact.

(Further details to follow.)

Date/Time: 
Wednesday, 19 June, 2019 - 13:00 to 15:30

Voscur's 2020 project is bringing together organisations like yours from around the city to learn and grow together. We’ll be providing free training and one-to-one support to enable you to assess your development needs, produce an excellent business-plan and benefit from new income sources. We’re also building up a network that will give you the chance to share your experiences, challenges and solutions with organisations from other neighbourhoods working towards similar goals.

You can read more about the project here.

Date/Time: 
Tuesday, 5 March, 2019 - 10:00 to 12:00
