August 20 @ 3:00 pm – 4:15 pm

Dates & Times

August 20, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm


As the charity sector continues to manage the impact of the pandemic, many charities are facing financial uncertainty. In this context many senior leaders, to ensure their charity’s sustainability, will be considering collaboration and merger.

In this webinar, in association with NCVO, we aim to answer questions such as: When should a charity in crisis consider merging? What are the alternatives? How can you make the best decision for your organisation?

You will also hear about our new online decision-making tool which will help organisations chart the options open to them in a tight financial spot. There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the webinar.

What does the webinar cover?

By the end of the webinar, you will: 

  • Know what you should consider in thinking about a merger
  • Understand the main practical and legal issues you will face if trying to merge in a crisis
  • Understand the alternatives to merger, like collaboration
  • Know where to go for further information and guidance 

Who should join the webinar?

This webinar is open to all but will be particularly useful for trustees and senior charity leaders.
