Politics, Partnerships, and Power: Raising Questions for Civil Society
As we begin to emerge from the coronavirus pandemic, civil society organisations (including those in the voluntary, community, social enterprise, and faith sectors) are contemplating the longer term implications of the triple threats they have faced in resources, operations, and demand. Demand for charities’ support in the aftermath, is likely to be higher than ever. While some volunteers are feeling burnt out, others are considering their return to activities that were put on pause. The sector is increasingly subject to political interference, reliant on building new partnerships, and investigating its own power structures.
The Early Bird rate is available until 23:59 on Wednesday 27th July
