The world changes and the charity sector must change with it. Coronavirus has been catastrophic, but good things have also emerged through new ways of working. Innovation and collaboration which would have taken years is now happening at lightning pace. We don’t have to go back to the way we did things before. How radical we are will be determined by our appetite for bold change.
At the same time, charities are grappling with the daunting challenge of climate change, an uncertain Brexit transition, and structural racism. Rising to these challenges demands charities to think hard about how they work, what they stand for, and how they intend to change things.
We’re taking these questions head on.
We’re continually developing our expertise, and we’re sharing our learning as we go.
We’re bringing our own distinctive NPC approaches to the big challenges facing society:
Who we've worked with
NPC worked with Romsey Mill to advance its Youth Development Team’s theory of change and to improve its approaches to collecting and analysing data.
The Clothworkers’ Company is one of the Great Twelve Livery Companies of the City of London. For the past 11 years, The Clothworkers’ Company has partnered with NPC on our trusteeship events series.
As part of its new strategy, Praxis commissioned NPC to develop a framework to help embed co-production values and practices into its No Recourse to Public Funds campaign.
OTEC worked with NPC, in the early stages of its growth, to adopt grant-making best practice and for support on theory of change and impact measurement.
Against a backdrop of growing demand for its funding, The Robertson Trust commissioned NPC to support its strategy development.
Heart of the City commissioned NPC to conduct a review of their strategy, impact practice, finances, and funding environment, to help them improve their practice and inform critical decisions.
The Social Switch Project commissioned NPC to support their evaluation design and data collection, to independently capture impact, and to ensure their programme was running as effectively as possible.
NPC were commissioned to undertake a mid-term evaluation of one of ClientEarth's forestry programmes.
NPC really impressed me with how quickly you were able to provide information, thinking and support in response to coronavirus. Your role in convening people and providing information was a real anchor at a time of uncertainty.
