Income generation support

A key focus of our work is supporting our members with their income generating activities. This support is for everyone involved in generating income for our member organisations, such as fundraisers, retailers and lottery managers.

We share knowledge and good practice by developing national initiatives that our members can get involved in, as well as delivering conferences, training, networks and publications.

Subscribe to our Income Generation Bulletin to keep up to date on all our national initiatives and programmes that we are developing or supporting, new ideas or products which may help to generate income for your organisations and latest sector news.
