The Centre for Social Impact is drawing on the experience of its network and community to understand the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on the philanthropic sector, the long-term implications of this event, and to identify possible social impact responses.

The programme combines workshops with knowledge and practice sessions to enable trustees to share ideas and practices from their governance journeys as they develop their governance skills.
