This seminar equipped participants with the knowledge and resources to ensure their charity’s continued success by planning well and future-proofing their charity.
Significant amounts of public money are spent by some charities to deliver services of a public service nature. Changing patterns of public service delivery indicate that this is likely to expand into areas where public sector bodies have previously operated. Regardless of the type of organisation delivering services, it is important to ensure that there is good value for the public pound.
Who the event was aimed at
The event was aimed at organisations that receive public money. It is recognised that charities that do not directly use public money have considerable experience and knowledge, which can be shared so as to improve the use of public money, and they were therefore also welcome to attend.
Specifically the event was aimed at trustees and chairs of:
- public sector organisations
- voluntary sector organisations
- social enterprises
- community businesses
It consisted of a showcase plenary session on overcoming common issues and offered the choice of attending two of the following workshops:
