Sensemakers is a project run by Sortified, CASE, CERT & Kai-zen, funded by the Connect Fund, an organisation set up to strengthen the social investment market.
The project is looking to understand what business support is needed now, and, in the future to support VCSE organisations to adapt and become more resilient as a result of pandemics, lockdowns, and the resulting social and economic issues.
The project is looking to ‘make sense’ of what has worked and did not work in terms of VCSE business survival over the last year. It is looking to identify good practice to share with funders, social investors and across VCSE networks to support them the future.
This is an opportunity to highlight your good practice, let funders know the real issues you are facing as well as help social investors to develop new products that can actually work for your organisation. The survey can be accessed here.
The project is also looking for case studies and people willing to share their experiences with the wider sector. Details of how to submit your experiences can be found in the project inbox section, which can be accessed here.
