Snapshots of the sector

What matters to the social sector in 2019?

As part of our ongoing work to better understand the issues facing the social sector, we spoke to 18 charity leaders, foundations, charities, public sector organisations, cross-sector organisations and professional services firms from across the UK. These interviews form the basis of our six snapshots – looking at the issues which matter today.
