Why collaboration needs to be on the radar for the charity sector

Date Thursday 20 April
Time 08.45–09.30
Location The Brewery, London

According to the latest Charity Commission figures, there are currently more than 183,000 charities operating in England and Wales, collectively spending almost £60bn a year on good causes. A growing number of people, including senior figures within the third sector, are starting to feel the market is becoming crowded.

Wherever you stand on the matter, the fact is many of these charities will be operating in the same area and often working towards the same goal, whether that’s finding a cure for cancer, helping former members of the armed forces or caring for abused animals. Some will even be duplicating the services offered by others, putting them in direct competition for donors.

With belts still tight after years of austerity and the reputation of charities still recovering after years of high-profile scandals, perhaps it’s time more charities started looking seriously at collaboration and outsourcing.

Patrick Nash, founder and CEO of Connect Assist and Anthony Baines, director of operations at The Royal British Legion will talk through the challenges and benefits of collaboration for charities and their service users and will show how four charities are collaborating with a wider group of 26 partners for the greater good of their service users.
