Finance & Administration
Our original project budget for the year was £177,770. We ended up going over budget by £44. Minor re-profiling of our budget headings was required during the year.
At the start of the project we retained all existing staff from our previously funded projects and recruited extra part-timers to deliver the food waste and community energy strands. In the course of the year, one of our transport staff left and we used sessional workers to take over aspects of his responsibilities. One of our energy audit team reduced his hours because of family commitments and we used this budget to employ part-time administrative assistance to help implement the contact management system that we use to coordinate support to households.
