Security Review 'sharing day'

Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations.  We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact joanna.low@brighton-hove.gov.uk to register your interest.

Taking payments online: Making the most of digital donations

The Charity Finance Group is a charity that champions best practice in finance management in the voluntary sector. ‘Making the most of digital donations: A practical guide to selecting and using online giving platforms (PDF)’ is a publication available via their website that offers organisations guidance when choosing a provider and may be a valuable resource for all charities that are looking at how they can maximise their fundraising presence online by working with online giving platforms.

The guide will be particularly useful for smaller charities that may be less sure about how online giving platforms work or what they need to do when working with different partners. It has been developed with the Institute of Fundraising who are currently working in partnership with the Heritage Alliance to deliver their fundraising training workshops.
