'Sustainability champion' fund launched

A fund to help Welsh charities visit other organisations and learn about sustainability has been launched.

The Be Informed fund, financed by the Big Lottery Fund in Wales and managed by the Wales Council for Voluntary Action, will contribute up to £200 to the cost of visiting ‘champion’ organisations from across the UK that have set up successful trading activities or delivered public services effectively.

Charities will also be encouraged to visit organisations that have had bad experiences with sustainability. Host bodies will be paid consultancy fees of up to £200.

Sara Carroll, funding advice Cymru officer at the WCVA, said sustainable organisations needed to plan effectively, build skills and capacity and choose a variety of appropriate income streams.

Application forms are available at www.sustainablefundingcymru.org.uk.
