Working With Others

About this training session

There are many benefits to working with other not-for-profit organisations, from accessing funding to increasing your reach in the community. When you combine forces with another group, it's important to understand the legal side of the various options available for working together, and what they might mean for your organisation. .

You'll learn about:

  • Differences between a memorandum of understanding (MOU), partnerships, auspicing, joint ventures, amalgamations and mergers
  • Legal options available for formally working with other organisations
  • Key legal issues to consider before working with another organisation
  • Avoiding negative legal consequences of poorly planned arrangements

We’ll also give you top tips and additional resources to help you in the future.
