When charities thrive, everyone benefits. But at a time of competing priorities and pressures in the sector, how can charities ensure their organisations are set up for success? The need to maximise impact, maintain public trust and demonstrate ongoing value for money is causing leaders to look again at the organisations they run. Are their staff, volunteers and networks able to cope with these demands? And do their organisations really embody the causes they champion on a practical, working level?
Added to this is the broader groundswell of change, including a generational shift in attitudes and ways of working, which is leading organisations to rethink how they operate. Younger people have fundamentally different expectations of what it means to work or volunteer for a charity; the experience for them is almost as meaningful as the cause.
How are charity leaders enabling their organisations to master these challenges? And what understanding and tools do they need to succeed?
On Thursday 3rd October, we will be hosting a breakfast seminar event. The seminar aims to provoke a discussion through real-life examples in the sector, focusing on three particular areas:
- How charities can become more agile and innovative: Managing competing demands? A more dynamic workplace? Better adoption of good ideas and fresh thinking?
- Engaging the future workforce of volunteers, staff and others: Reducing bureaucracy? Making it easier for volunteers and staff to get involved?
- Exploring the dynamic of collaboration versus competition between charities: How can organisations collaborate more effectively to achieve common goals?
