NPC: Building resilience through and beyond the Covid-19 crisis

NPC: Building resilience through and beyond the Covid-19 crisis

4 August 2020, 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Charity trustees have acted quickly to refocus efforts and activities as the world responds to Covid-19. But as this crisis drags on, and a major economic downturn becomes more imminent, trustees are switching their focus to how they deliver their mission over the medium and longer term.

This seminar—run in partnership with the Clothworker’s Company—explores what trustees are and should be doing now that the initial shock has passed. It will cover issues, such as:

How Covid-19 is affecting the people and communities charities work with and what new needs are emerging from the fallout.
What trustees can do to ensure their charity’s mission remain relevant to changing need, and how they can help their organisations become more resilient to the new threats posed by the outbreak.
What actions trustees can take now to help shape the post-Covid world.

NCVO WEBINAR: UK CIVIL SOCIETY ALMANAC 2020: WHAT THE LATEST DATA TELLS US ABOUT CHARITIES’ CHALLENGES NOW AND IN THE FUTURE

NCVO WEBINAR: UK CIVIL SOCIETY ALMANAC 2020: WHAT THE LATEST DATA TELLS US ABOUT CHARITIES’ CHALLENGES NOW AND IN THE FUTURE

There is no doubt that covid-19 is having a major impact on the voluntary and community sector. Despite having some data available on the immediate impact of the pandemic, there is little long-term evidence on what this will mean for charities. Making use of time series data from the UK Civil Society Almanac (sponsored by Sarasin and Partners), this free webinar will give you an overview of the state of the charity sector and what those trends mean in the current context.

Date: 9 July 2020
Time: 14.00–15.00

The webinar will be presented by Lisa Hornung, data and research manager leading on the Almanac, and Elizabeth Chamberlain, head of policy and public services at NCVO. It will be followed by a 15-minute Q&A session.

We will be talking about the latest data available on the size and scope of the charity sector, its finances, workforce and volunteering. We will explore the potential impact of covid-19 on each of those themes and give pointers to what organisations should be thinking about when planning for the future.

Charities can’t think of themselves as islands any longer. Many are seizing on partnerships to find new ways through. As the funding pressures bite, there might even be cause for consolidation across the sector. Join us to discuss how the voluntary sector can better work together to support one another and their beneficiaries.
