Our work continues
Through the crisis, the Joffe Trust is carrying on its core work of making grants and supporting grantees. We have signed the Covid Funders Statement, committing us to listen and take a flexible approach. We’re helping organisations adapt to the new realities and safeguard key capacity.
We are starting work with others on the strategic implications of the crisis, including the transformed political landscape. The FT argues that there’s an opportunity to build a new social contract.
- With Partners for a New Economy, we convened 20 funders to discuss the implications for structural reform of the UK economy. Useful insights in this short report. (7/4/20)
- Our Director’s article on three implications for civil society. (2/4/20)
We’re keen to help organisations stay in touch and work through issues together. Let us know if you think we could usefully organise a webinar on any particular subject.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if there’s anything we can do.
