For 20 years NPC has been helping philanthropists and charities to maximise social impact in the lives of the people they serve. To mark our 20th birthday, we’ve been talking to leading figures and people doing things differently to ask: Where next for social impact? In this interview, Hannah Paterson, Yasmin Ibison, and Katie Boswell discuss the place of participation in grantmaking. Opinions are the interviewees’ own.
