Keyfund @ Gateshead Youth Council
YFG members have developed some promotional material to recruit more YFG members and also made plans to get the Keyfund message out to more groups. For a copy of the poster go to http://www.gbyoc.org.uk/uploads/keyfund%20poster1.pdf
Note for facilitators
If you have registered a group and the group has been validated, money is automatically reserved against your project. However, to make it fair to other organisations, if your group has not organised a panel date before three months are over, the group will automatically be lapsed.
Membership of GYC runs from 1st July until 30th June each year and gives organisations access to Keyfund; discounted rates on Life Route Accreditations, as well as training courses such as Involve Me and the Member Action Course.
