One of the initiatives we've recently launched at Voluntary Arts is Running Your Group - a one-stop shop for instant guidance on all aspects of running a voluntary group. If you haven't already signed up, go to and create an account to get loads of brilliant free resources.

You can find out more in our Running Your Group weekly webcast, which goes through some of the benefits of signing up and gives you top tips on different subjects. This week, I was speaking about the fabulous Epic Awards and encouraging amateur arts and crafts groups to get their entries in before the deadline of 30th November 2012.
