Day 2            Big Advice Day 

If you are a small charity it’s important you get access to the right support and advice. If you’re in Halton or St Helens you can start with us at Halton & St Helens VCA. Our website is a great place to start for information and advice and the right person to contact whether that’s Jane Williams our Community Accountant or Lynne Daffern for information on how to get on our mailing lists www.haltonsthelensvca.org.uk  It's important you know about the Charity Commission and the regulation for charities https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/charity-commission
