Covid-19: Getting money quickly to frontline services: Building on experience of past emergencies
The pressures of uncertainty
Briefing 1 for trusts and foundations on the challenges faced by VCSE leaders during the Covid-19 crisis
Recognising the tremendous pressure that charity leaders are under as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, IVAR is facilitating online peer support groups for leaders of voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations. The aim is to create a space for them to share challenges, dilemmas and worries, and to learn from each other’s experiences. Participation in the first sessions was primarily by organisations with a turnover of £1 million or less.
Part of our offer is to feedback to funders the kinds of challenges smaller VCSE organisations are facing, and the help they need. This briefing shares the experiences of the first 23 leaders participating in the sessions, and our reflections on the questions and opportunities for funders that they raise. Further briefings will follow as new groups meet.
