We might run out of funding

Funding cuts are causing worry and difficulties across the district at the moment. If you are a trustee and concerned about finances at your charity, please get help and advice as early as possible. More time equals more options so it's much better not to wait until you're certain that the organisation is in financial difficulties. There are no stupid questions! It's ok if you don't know, ask.
