22nd October 1-2pm, Learning Lunch: Not-for-profit: the shape of the
future?

Traditionally work in the not-for-profit sector has taken the form of
a charity – either a charitable trust or a company limited by
guarantee with charitable status. However as the political, social and
economic environment in which charities operate changes, so must they.

There are an increasing number of options available to the not-for-
profit sector.

As the nature of charitable funding shifts from grants to the more
commercial approach of tendering for contracts, charities must
reassess the way they fundraise. As well as requiring a more
commercial outlook in the way they cost up projects for funding bids,
charities are also seeking to strengthen their bids by joining forces
with other charities so they can better deliver the contracts on
offer. This has resulted in a variety of creative solutions, including
partnerships, joint ventures and consortia.

These new ways of working are relatively unfamiliar to the sector and
many charities are struggling to cope with the new challenges ahead of
them. This Learning Lunch aims to provide a forum for discussion to
address some of these issues.
