Sometimes we need to think about the practical to bring our dreams to life! This section of the portal helps you to think through the practical side of running your event or activity.  You might not need everything, depending on what you're planning, but take a look through and see what is helpful for you.


Financial practicalities

This section includes how to work out how much money you'll need for your event (if any), fundraising ideas and how to find what you need in your community.
