Every day, staff and volunteers at 169,000 charities across Britain endeavor to meet people’s needs, tackle social inequalities, or avert environmental or humanitarian crises.
To succeed, charities must work as efficiently and effectively as possible, making best use of their funding. They must find new ways to adapt and flourish in a changing policy environment and take advantage of innovations that have the potential to drive their work for a better world.
We provide the tools and resources to enable charities and funders to do this, so you can focus on the people you serve. We explore and develop approaches that have the potential to benefit the whole social sector, so that charities can flourish.
