Governance in a Commissioning Landscape - London, 05/11/12

Date: 5th November 2012
Time: 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Venue: The Clothworkers Company, London
Cost: £45.00
The funding landscape has changed for the voluntary sector whether we like it or not. It means a new way of working for charities and their Boards.We asked charities about everything from the types of contracts they’re bidding for, to their relationships with commissioners, working in partnership or consortia, experiences of subcontracting, cuts to their government income, and how they feel about the future in our report When the going gets tough
  • Charities are finding things tough. Charities are facing a drop in income at a time when the demand for their services is increasing.
  • Charities believe they face a much riskier future. 90% of our respondents believe they face a riskier future now than this time last year.
  • Charities have changed the way they work in response to changes in commissioning. Nearly 80% of our respondents plan to work more collaboratively with other organisations - which can help small charities get a look in on big government contracts.  
But what does this mean for you as charity trustee?  What is your role in supporting the management team, how and when should you get involved and do you need to recruit new expertise to the Board?
This seminar will:
  • Provide an overview of the new landscape charities are operating in;
  • Discuss the new set of liabilities and risks associated with commissioning; and
  • Provide case study examples of how other charities are operating in a commissioning environment.
The seminar will be chaired by Sue Wixley, Head of Communications at NPC, and trustee of Theatre for a Change.

The panellists are:
  • Iona Joy, Head of Charity Effectiveness, NPC
  • Selman Ansari, Partner - Public & Regulatory Law Group, BWB
  • Graham Mynott, Head of Project, Key House
  • Carol Homden, Chair, NAS
