Description

Polly Neate

Chief Executive │ Shelter

Polly has a wealth of experience in managing charities and joined Shelter in August 2017 from Women’s Aid, where she was Chief Executive. Prior to that she was Executive Director of External Relations and Communications at Action for Children, one of the UK’s largest charities.

These charities are all to a large degree dependent on commissioning for survival and in this free seminar Polly will use her considerable experience to talk about the impact of this on mission, service quality and innovation and the responsibility charities have to their beneficiaries.

Polly believes that unless power is explicitly acknowledged and deliberately disrupted and shared, there is a danger that the experiences of those who rely on us will not be heard and that the nature and value of charity - particularly at local level and where activism and advocacy are part of the mix - will change irrevocably.

Please note you must be a member of the Academy to attend an event and if you are not yet a member you will be prompted to join when booking. Membership is free and details of services can be found on our web pages
