When: Thursday 25th April 2019, 14:00 – 15:30 Where: Bath City Farm, Kelston View, Bath, BA2 1NW Continuing financial adversity among not-for-profit organisations, coupled with the need to ensure client needs are actually being achieved, has seen greater emphasis on ensuring value-for-money (VFM) in operational activities. However, the focus on achieving successful long-term outcomes, the needs of a diverse stakeholder base and the prevailing economic climate, means that achieving value-for-money in not-for-profit organisations is increasingly difficult. This discussion café is an opportunity for 3SG members to meet to explore Value-for-Money (VFM) in its widest sense, where participants will hopefully support and inspire each other with the aim of improving VFM in their respective organisations. Topics to be discussed will potentially include:
how VFM is assessed
decision-making processes that drive VFM, appropriate performance measures that contribute and support VFM
how VFM is embedded and championed in not-for-profit organisations.
The event will be chaired by Dr Carl Evans of University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol, who is undertaking BAFA funded research exploring VFM in the charity sector. It is hoped that the research findings from this project will identify aspects of best-practice that could be adopted by organisations in the sector and will potentially lead to a model of best practice or VFM in the charity sector being developed.
As part of Small Charity Week 2019 3SG will be hosting a Big Advice Day Drop-in Clinic in Bath on the afternoon of 18th June. Participants will be able to access free advice from experts on a range of subjects. To register your interest, please contact 3SG
