Join us to discuss the latest paper from our State of the Sector programme. Hear from paper authors, Theo Clay, Consultant, NPC and Tom Collinge, Policy Manager, NPC about how charities have reacted to Covid-19.
In this paper we reveal how the social needs served by an already overstretched sector have increased and intensified, with coronavirus itself creating new needs and making service delivery more difficult. We show how it’s getting tougher to secure funding, and how rapid change makes it hard to deliver on funding requirements. At a time when charities are never more needed, important activities are being stripped back to meet emergency demand.
Our research captures our sector in the final few months of calm before the storm, offering insight into its strengths, weaknesses, challenges and risks, so that philanthropists, funders and policy makers can best support charities to help those who rely on them now more than ever.
Today NPC publishes new research from our state of the sector programme involving around 400 charity leaders. Here, NPC's head of Policy and External Affairs Patrick Murray gives a brief overview of what we found.
We're exploring bold and imaginative responses in times of change to help the charity sector adapt and thrive.
Here we publish 16 essays from innovative leaders in the social sector. They're thinking about, and putting into action, new ways of achieving social change for the causes and beneficiaries their organisations exist to serve. This is third output from NPC's #StateoftheSector programme.
