Money matters: CIPFA, Business Link - and social audits explained

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

The toolkit, which guides small charities through the basics of accounting, was launched earlier this year. The institute is seeking feedback on which subjects would be most useful for small organisations. For more information email

Business Link in London will launch a new website later in the year that will provide a comprehensive guide to setting up a social enterprise. The website will be run with other social enterprise bodies and will look at legal structures, raising finance, marketing and PR and the support and resources available for social enterprises.

A conference for people involved in social accounting will take place on 13 November in Liverpool. The Social Audit Network Conference, which will be held at Blackburne House, will look at the practical issues surrounding social accounting, such as which aspects of a charity's performance can be measured.
