The Future of Doing Good

January 26th 2017

The Bevan Foundation is working with the Big Lottery Fund Wales to encourage discussion about the future of ‘doing good’ in Wales.

The Big Lottery Fund is encouraging people across the UK to share ideas about the future of all those organisations and services that improve people’s lives – called ‘doing good’. They have commissioned a report by Sonia Sodha to set out the issues raised by the current challenges that face charities, voluntary and community groups in particular.  Now the Big Lottery Fund is working with the Bevan Foundation to find out what people in Wales think.

The aims of the project are:

  • to encourage thinking and discussion about the future of charities, voluntary organisations and community groups
  • to gather views, experiences and questions from those working in the third sector
  • to share and discuss the issues with key stakeholders in other sectors.

Find out more by reading our short discussion paper in English or Cymraeg or watch the video

Funders:  Big Lottery Fund (commission)

Start date: November 2016        End date:  March 2017

Key Outputs

Who sets the third sector agenda?

The first of a series of online articles, Victoria Winckler considers the independence of the third sector in Wales.

Take the Survey!

Please share your thoughts with us by answering 6 questions about what you think the future of ‘doing good’ might be. It covers:

  • who sets the agenda and how independent are third sector organisations?
  • how organisations decide what to do – and are they effective?
  • the impact of cuts to and changes in funding?
  • what is the difference between the public sector and third sector?
  • changes your organisation faces in the next three years?
  • the future role(s) of the public and third sectors?

The survey is here – responses close on 17th February.

Discuss with others

We’ve held roundtable discussions to tease out the issues and challenges in North and South Wales. The findings from these sessions, as well as interviews and the survey, will form the basis of the final report.
