The Department intends to publish guidance on income generation later this year.

The Department is developing this resource, which will include advice on how schools can use their premises for the community and set out other types of income generation such as letting out premises, working with local businesses, selling goods and services, and applying for grants.

The Department’s aim is to inform schools in their ability to generate income and help them build strong community links at the same time.
