Taking some control

Briefing 6 on the challenges faced by VCSE leaders during the Covid-19 crisis

The sixth briefing reflects the experiences of 31 charities between 12 May and 2 June 2020 through online support sessions, and our reflections on the questions and opportunities for funders that this raises.

Four concerns stood out as front of mind for VCSE leaders:

  1. The uncertainty of future funding
  2. Staff welfare and morale
  3. Balancing the opportunities and limitations of virtual service provision
  4. The organisation’s strategic direction

What next?
