The role of philanthropy and social movements

Asylum, refugee & migration network

Speaker Esther Foreman, The Social Change Agency

Chair Alex Sutton, Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Co-convenor Asylum, refugee & migration network

From Grenfell Tower to the Calais migrant crisis, technology has enabled citizens to organise and advocate in entirely new ways, often at a speed, scale and reach not seen before. So, what does this mean for philanthropy? How can trusts and foundations support these grass-roots movements?  How can foundations deliver effective grant making and be sure they are meeting their charitable public benefit requirement?

To help answer these questions, we will hear new research by The Social Change Agency that unpacks the experience of Help Refugees - a self-initiating volunteer movement set up in response to the Calais refugee crisis. 

Please join us for an afternoon discussion, at ACF in London, looking at the role of philanthropy in supporting volunteer-led social movements as a response to humanitarian crisis.
