NPC Ignites: 12-14 October 2021

NPC Ignites 2021 maybe over but you can still catch up on all the sessions and hear from our fantastic speakers via the recordings.

We debated the big themes facing the charity and philanthropy sectors today, including social inequality, the climate crisis, the government’s ‘levelling up’ agenda and discussed how to rethink and rebuild our sector for the future. We had an exciting line up of speakers, whose expertise made this conference unforgettable, including Prof. Michael Marmot, author of the highly influential health inequalities review, who provided the opening presentation of NPC Ignites 2021.

  • Recordings for all sessions available: If you missed out and would like to catch up, you can still buy a ticket and access all the recordings across the three days.
