All groups need to manage their money and account for it whether it is small sums of cash or large scale grants. All the members of the management group or committee are responsible for the money – not just the Treasurer. The responsibility is not just to the people who gave the money – which might be a member of the group, the public or funders – but also the Inland Revenue and possibly Police. Have clear rules, e.g. who can sign cheques (at least two people), no signing of blank cheques and no signing without supporting documentation.
