The national charity saving historic churches at risk
In partnership with the Princes Regeneration Trust, The Churches Conservation Trust's Regeneration Taskforce have developed a toolkit aimed at volunteer and community groups seeking to bring new life to heritage buildings.
The toolkit focusses on a crucial part of the process for achieving funding and ensuring long-term project sustainability - the development of a well-structured business plan.
It is intended to be accessible to all, especially those who have never looked at a business plan, let alone tried to put one together. Written in sections to allow each part to be attempted one at a time, it is illustrated with helpful hints, quotes and case studies from other community groups who have gone through the process before.
The toolkit launched in Norwich on 4th July 2013 – click here to view Norwich Launch Learning Paper 2013 (PDF, 1.3 mb)
