We have now published 11 climate action case studies showing what sector leaders are doing to tackle the climate emergency in their organisations, from doing an eco audit to reviewing the investment portfolio. This doesn’t mean they have completed everything, but that they have picked a place to start, which unblocks fear and triggers action in other areas. We hope this series gives you lots of ideas for taking climate action in your own organisation! Please get in touch if you would like to submit a case study to contribute to this series. 

A recent poll by ACAS revealed that over half of employers expect an increase in remote working after the pandemic. As we start to move on from Covid-19 and embrace hybrid working, the team at BDB Pitmans has produced a member briefing outlining the legal implications of hybrid working, including contracts, health and safety, and the risk of discrimination claims.

The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill has now received Royal Assent and became an Act of Parliament at the end of April. It marked the end of a 14-month campaign coordinated by the Police Bill Alliance, involving over 350 civil society organisations campaigning against two critical parts of the Bill, namely part three restricting people’s protest rights, and part four on criminalising nomadic lifestyles. Kathleen Christie assessed the final stages of the Bill, the campaign’s impact, and how charities can engage in some key implications for civil society moving forward.

The sessions and speakers for #ACEVOFest22 are now available on the website!

Announced new events

When you start to think about leaving your current role, what are the things to consider both for you and the charity? Join us on Wednesday 20 July to hear from Patricia Armstrong OBE who leaves her CEO role at ACOSVO this year. Pat will offer some tips for leaving well when the time is right and what to prioritise in your last 100 days in post.

Most organisations have a clear mission and purpose, but many struggle to measure and demonstrate the impact they are delivering. Funders are hungry for data that will tell them their investment is making a difference, and your organisation’s service users want to have confidence in the charity they’re letting into their lives. Join us on Thursday 7 July from 2-3pm to hear from a team of specialists from Clarasys, who will talk about all the jigsaw pieces needed to measure and deliver impact as a charity
