Money matters: Amateur sports clubs, social enterprises and credit unions in Wales

David Ainsworth's round-up of what's happening in the finance world

A new list of community amateur sports clubs registered with HM Revenue & Customs, effective from October, has been published on the HMRC website.

The Social Enterprise Coalition is seeking views from the third sector on what social enterprises should demand from political parties in the run-up to the next general election. The coalition is planning to produce a social enterprise manifesto setting out what it believes should be the targets for the next government. Workshops will take place in Birmingham on 3 November and London on 17 November.

Credit unions in Wales will receive £1m of funding from the Welsh Assembly, the Welsh minister for social justice, Brian Gibbons, has announced. The money is intended to help credit unions buy their own properties and carry out other capital works. "The funding will help to reduce credit unions' overheads and strengthen their balance sheets," said Gibbons. "This will improve their stability and contribute to their long-term sustainability."
