A new phase for Third Sector Foresight

Shortly before Christmas, Capacity Builders announced that we had been successful in our bid to lead the 'National Support Service' on 'Responding to Social Change' from April 2008. This represents an extremely exciting step for NCVO Third Sector Foresight. Through this programme we will be working with support providers (eg local infrastructure organisations, specialist infrastructure organisations, consultants and all others who support front line organisations) to help the sector to understand and respond to 'social change' (which we believe encompasses political, social, economic and technological drivers). We will be working with our long-standing partner, Caroline Copeman (Centre for Charity Effectiveness, Cass Business School) and Yorkshire and the Humber Regional Forum.

I will post further details as we develop the business plan over the next three months. In the meantime I'd be very interested in hearing from any Third Sector Foresight members who are, or who work for, 'support providers' and would be interested in helping to shape and steer our work. Please email me and/or post your thoughts below.
