Over the last few years, charities have been operating in times of great change and uncertainty; from adapting to a global pandemic, to navigating the cost-of-living crisis, the climate crisis and the conflict in Ukraine. It’s likely that the impact of these challenges will continue for some time.      

A changing environment comes with drastic changes in the needs of those charities support and charities’ ability to deliver that support, and charities need to be able to adapt and stay relevant in the face of change.  We invite you to join Daniel Saifu, a researcher from NPC’s Research and Consulting team as he and 3 special guests with rich experience in sector exchange knowledge, perspective and solutions for trustees facing contemporary issues. Guest speakers include: 

So how is the role of a trustee different in times of crisis, change and uncertainty? What is the role of the trustee in governing charities so that they can continue to be impactful in the face of change and uncertainty?

  • Explore how the role of a trustee might be different in times of crisis, change or uncertainty  
  • Consider how trustees can balance managing risk and exploring opportunities
