Time for flexibility

Briefing 7 on the challenges faced by VCSE leaders during the Covid-19 crisis

This seventh briefing shares the experiences of 34 leaders participating in the sessions between 4th June and 15th June 2020, and our reflections on the questions and opportunities for funders that they raise.

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

  1. Mid to long-term funding prospects.
  2. Balancing the immediate needs of staff and beneficiaries with the long-term future of their organisations.
  3. Thinking flexibly.

What next?
