8.00 am  Arrival, networking & coffee and croissants


8.15 am  “Funding Core cost and Full cost recovery”  Anita Hansen & Paula Bennetts, Dorset Community Action.  Core costs are those associated with the running of your organisation, those essential functions that if they weren’t funded could limited the operation and effectiveness of your organisation.  These costs can be covered if they are related to a specific project (full cost recovery), but if they are associated with the management of the organisation then they are less appealing to donors and funders as they are not directly achieving your outcomes or benefiting your service users.   So how can you cover core costs and ensure the effective management of your organisations services.  This session aims to give some useful hints and tips to sustain your operational costs.
