What lessons can charities learn from the pandemic?

Join us for our live question and answer webinar with Debra Allcock Tyler, Chief Executive of Directory of Social Change (DSC).

The charity sector and, more importantly, its beneficiaries have been some of the hardest hit in society and some organisations may not survive. There is no doubt the pandemic has put a spotlight on some of the real challenges the sector is facing. The question is whether this is the catalyst needed to deliver real change and a stronger society. 

In this session, we will explore:

  • The lessons learnt from the past year and what trustees should be thinking about in the future;
  • The sector’s relationship with the government, politicians and the regulator;
  • How the sector’s role in society might change post-pandemic.
