This business plan template has been developed by the Key Fund as part of a programme to increase access to social investment.

Voscur is a delivery partner in the programme and all the organisations involved are encouraged to share tools and resources through a learning network to spread good practice and increase its overall impact for VCSE groups.

This simple self-assessment tool aims to help you think about your organisation's current strengths and gaps in relation to income sustainability and the potential you may have to seek social investment.

It has been developed as part of Voscur's 2020 project to support organisational sustainability through social enterprise and social investment in the south-west.

Survivors of sexual violence are invited to complete an anonymous survey for the Sexual Violence Support Consortium, which will identify demand for a possible paid counselling service in Bristol, Avon and Somerset.

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.

At a time when so much is uncertain, especially Brexit, it can seem impossible to plan for your organisation's future; it's not as if you have a crystal ball. But that’s also an opportunity to take things into your own hands. The plan for Brexit will arrive from London via Brussels – in contrast, your business plan can be produced by you and your community.

So do you have a business plan? Do you know where it is? Is it in the back of a filing cabinet gathering dust? Is it 97 pages long and nobody’s ever read it?
