Money matters: a free technology exhibition, value for money in the health sector and a new survey

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

A free exhibition for technology professionals in the sector is being held on 7 September at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. The nfp technology exhibition is intended to raise awareness of new technology available to the sector.

Charities are being asked to contribute their views to a new assessment tool being developed the National Social Marketing Centre. The scheme, funded by the Department of Health and the government consumer watchdog Consumer Focus, will allow charities in the health sector to measure the effectiveness of the projects they run and ensure they represent value for money.

The Charity Finance Directors' Group and the Institute of Fundraising have asked charities to take part in a survey of how current economic conditions have affected the sector. The fourth Managing in a Downturn survey - conducted with accountancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers - will be open until 27 August. The previous survey attracted 181 responses and found that almost half had experienced a fall in income between May and November 2009.
