Making a Lasting Differece: a one-day workshop for charities, social enterprises and public services.
With funding in decline and demand on the rise, charities, social enterprises and public services are struggling for survival and long-term sustainability. Based on the popular ‘Lasting Difference’ toolkit, this practical workshop introduces the paradoxes, principles and practices of sustainable organisations. We explore the most common sustainability challenges and why they are more manageable than we might think. The five ‘sustainability’ capabilities are also introduced, with time for participants to explore their own real-life sustainability challenge or question, among supportive peers:
- Income generation
- Impact measurement
The event is particularly suitable for managers and project coordinators but it will also suit trustees, business development people or fundraisers, or anyone who wants to improve the sustainability of their project, organisation or sector. (The learning is just as valuable to membership bodies and funders).
To get the most out of the workshop, we’ll ask you to download the Lasting Difference toolkit and complete the self-assessment in advance. This will prepare you for developing realistic sustainability plans for your project or organisation on completion of the course. By the end of the workshop, you will have:
- Improved and widened your understanding of sustainability
- Increased ability to think about sustainability in new ways
- Gained access to new tools for working on sustainability
- Increased ability to assess the sustainability of your project, organisation or sector
- Increased ability to make plans for improving sustainability
