Event description

Description


This event on 2nd May will generate new knowledge and learning about how funders (investors, grant makers, commissioners, philanthropists) can work together, and with potential providers, to create a collaborative-by-design system of finance.

We are excited to have Dawn Plimmer leading the event with us. Dawn is Head of Practice at Collaborate CIC where she leads Collaborate's place-based systems change work in Cambridgeshire and Essex, and its work on funding and commissioning. She is co-author of the report Exploring the New World: practical insights for funding, commissioning and managing in complexity.

Previously she worked at the Big Lottery Fund where she worked to develop and test new grant-making approaches and help establish a new UK-wide knowledge and learning function. Before this, Dawn was a Senior Consultant at NPC (New Philanthropy Capital), a charity think tank and consultancy where she supported charity, funder and corporate clients with strategy, research and learning in areas including early intervention and youth employability.

We will have representation from Go Lab who have also just published another useful report “Rallying Together” https://golab.bsg.ox.ac.uk/our-projects/about-future-state/

The Social Change Agency will also be attending and supporting us to 'Lose Control' at this event!

For further information about the day please see the agenda below:

We would also like to invite you to an evening social on the 1st May at Ocean Studios (18.30 - 21.30) where we will 'chew the fat' together and connect, paving the way for deeper more meaningful conversations throughout the event on the following day.

We are thankful for the engagement and collaboration with our team of trusted advisors from Collaborate CIC, The Social Change Agency (Losing Control), Esmee Fairbairn, Barrow Cadbury, SIMPL project team, The National Lottery Community Fund, GO Lab, Oxford Primary Care Health Sciences, NHSE, RIO, PSEN and Plymouth City Council. Without their thoughtful input we would not be developing these conversations.

As we develop further detail to the event we will keep this page updated, but please book on now to be part of the conversation!
