What charities can learn from one another
Join Charles Mesquita of Quiller Cheviot in this Q&A session with Jonathan Hill, Financial and Commercial Director at Rowcroft Hospice.
The hospice movement has been one of the great success stories of the charity sector since the first hospice, St Christopher’s House, was founded in 1967. The movement has become a world leader in palliative care and has shown a remarkable ability to adapt over the last 50 years. Today, the UK has over 220 hospices with a turnover of over £1.5bn, of which only around 30% of the funding comes from the government. Despite the remarkable success, it has not all been plain sailing. A case in point is Rowcroft Hospice, in 2016 the charity faced a significant funding crisis and was in danger of closing. In this session Charles and Jonathan explore how to turn around an organisation in a challenging financial position, how Rowcroft Hospice has adapted to the pandemic and how the landscape has changed post-pandemic.
