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
A crisis the scale of the pandemic has created deep and lasting impacts on our communities, the capital and for funders, who, during the pandemic, prioritised flexibility, trust, and equity. So where do funders priorities’ lie now, two years on from the first lockdown?
This session provided an opportunity to take stock of the present, exploring how funders are using the lessons from the pandemic to take action towards a more equitable, collaborative and transparent way of doing grantmaking.
We were delighted to be joined by the following speakers:
