SCVO - The future of work from a people perspective
Many trustees will be considering how the easing of the restrictions after lockdown will affect how their organisations operate day to day. After over a year of office closures, with many staff working from home, there are a whole host of questions for trustees to consider on the future use of their premises and flexible working. SCVO's website contains information relating to moving to a remote or hybrid working model. It looks at contractual issues, policies and training, data protection and confidentiality, health and safety, employee wellbeing and engagement.

Funder of the Week
Over the last 24 weeks we have highlighted a specific funder. This week we are highlighting an organisation called BREVIO. Their aim is to “Empower the charitable sector to achieve more!” They automate the initial steps in grant applications, to free up hundreds of millions of pounds every year in administration. It’s a matching platform that links funders and charities based on the impact they both want to achieve.
