Networking costs include: travel expenses for community leaders to visit each other for peer support, mentoring and learning exchanges; quarterly network leaders meetings costs; venue hire and catering costs for city-wide and borough-wide community dialogues; ICT equipment and related communications and software; and technical consultancy fees for providing support to the groups’ neighbourhood networks when developing local projects or participating in spatial planning processes.

Donations to CLASS will be invested in staff salary costs or essential overheads and running costs. We strive to keep our team and our running costs small and channel resources to groups and to the network as far as possible. CLASS provides capacity building and strategic support to savings groups affiliated to the savings movement, and their associated neighbourhood and city-wide networks. CLASS is led by the priorities of the member groups in the savings movement through quarterly network meetings and a range of accountability mechanisms which bring savings groups leaders together with CLASS staff, volunteers and trustees to agree, monitor and review our collective strategy and progress.
