The Local Accountancy Project, LAP, was established in July 1986 as a registered charity to address the fact that many small voluntary and community sector organisations including faith groups have difficulties in managing their finances.
Small organisations rarely have access to financial expertise, and those that take on responsibility for the finances often have little, if any, training in financial management. Executive members sometimes avoid addressing financial issues due to lack of understanding, and even fear of financial matters.
Through the services we provide for the sector, we are successfully increasing the skills and understanding of staff, volunteers, directors, chief executives, management committee members/ trustees and providing groups with financial expertise.
