London Funders AGM 2016

3pm, September 20th 2016 at the Macquarie Group- Ropemaker Place, 28 Ropemaker St, London EC2Y 9HD

Our AGM on September 20th focused on the implications of the referendum- Brexit means Brexit?  , as well as looking more broadly at the wider changes taking place within the operating environment for civil society in London.

Following the business part of our Annual General Meeting London Funders hosted a presentation and discussion on what the referendum result means for London, civic society, and the role of funders in responding to this changing landscape for Londoners and London’s communities.

Nancy Kelley – Director of Policy Research Centre at NatCen Social Research – set the scene, utilising published and unpublished data from a number of recent studies, looking at attitudes to issues such EU membership, trust in government (both national and regional), political attitudes in low income communities, and posed some questions for discussion about London’s position in a divided UK and the challenges of a divided London.  Our expert panel from the world of think tanks, local government and independent funders provided an initial response, with London Funders members asking questions and providing insight from the floor.
