Over March and April, we hosted a three-part webinar series to mark two years since lockdown started. The pandemic saw structural inequalities exacerbated and increased demand for civil society and community groups. But it also saw funders putting aside their usual practices to work with each other and with communities - quickly and flexibly. Across this webinar series, we used learning from the past two years (and in some cases, going back even further) to map out a picture of how funders can invest in London’s communities for the long-term.
The first webinar brought together some of the contributors of our recent Reports Reloaded series, where several funders and stakeholders looked back at London Funders’ archive of reports and thinking pieces, reflecting on what learning still applies and how funders can move forward together to tackle the issues facing London.
The first webinar pulled out some out some of the common threads that have emerged from each of contributors reflections in the Reports Reloaded series. We asked what their analyses have in common? Where do they differ? What does the lessons from past reviews, emergencies and work tell us about the future of funding?
We were delighted to be joined by the following Reports Reloaded contributors:
Keith Morgan, Camden Voluntary Action
Sharon Long, Partnership for Young London
Ben Cairns, Institute for Voluntary Action
Helen Mathie, London Funders
Paul Roberts, LGBT Consortium
