The cover theme of the May 2021 edition of G&L is ‘A year of crisis’, exploring how the charity sector has been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. We talk to charities and umbrella bodies to find out if the dire warnings that were being sounded last spring have come to pass, as well as examining what the next phase of the pandemic might bring for the sector.
The May issue also carries a case study from Blythe House Hospicecare about how it drove through a fundamental change management programme to secure its future in a changing world, and another from Muscular Dystrophy UK explaining the drivers behind its decision to transfer a key service to another disability charity.
In Law & Guidance, Beryl Hobson, the former head of large charities at the Charity Commission, offers some sound advice about how and why to keep good meeting minutes.
And the Core Functions topic is human resources, where the head of HR at Bromley, Lewisham and Greenwich Mind writes about the charity’s recent journey to become a more inclusive organisation.
