GOOD NEWS FOR THE THIRD SECTOR – Regarding Membership fees for Wirral Chamber.

As we know, the Third Sector is diverse and includes large multi-million pound national charitable organisations as well as small self-funded groups and organisations. It is because of this diversity that the Chamber has had some anomalies in applying their fee structure, which is based on number of paid employees. Community Action Wirral has been working in partnership with Wirral Chamber to agree a fee structure that takes the needs of the sector into account. After exploring several models, we have decided that a generous discount would be the best outcome. This is less complicated than applying a ‘pick and mix’ of services and benefits that may or may not be useful. This way, the sector can benefit from the whole package that membership offers, even if not all services are utilised. Third Sector members will therefore receive a 50% discount off their annual Chamber membership effective 1st March 2017.

It can be hard to find the time to stand back and take stock of where your organisation is at and think about the things that could help it do better in the future. If you’ve got 10 minutes we’d like to offer you a helping hand! Click here to find out how.
