Challenges of the Cross Border Charity
The impact of the shifting political environment in Scotland is making cross border working more complex and challenging, and is likely to have implications for both small and large third sector organisations working cross border.
Some of the challenges:
- How can the Scottish context be better articulated and understood?
- How might BREXIT impact in short/medium term?
- What might be the impact of a further Scottish Independence debate?
- How should organisations led from elsewhere best reflect the needs of those they are there to help and those who work for them?
- What organisational model best supports this landscape?
- How should organisations report to a UK board of trustees in a meaningful way on progress when work here impacts only a small proportion of total output?
- Can benefits of economy of scale achieved by centralising core functions lead to isolation and remoteness from regions/nations at distance from centre?
- What will be the impact of the new fundraising regulation be for organisations north of the border?
This seminar will examine these changing relationships and discuss how the essential formal and informal relationships with the UK operation and other key stakeholders should best be managed.
If you are involved in any form of cross border working this event is for you!
