In this video John Hitchin presents the learning from the Funding Place-Based Systemic Change enquiry. With contributions from Natsayi Sithole of Save the Children UK and Stephen Skeet from Volunteering Matters.

The Funding Place Based Systemic Change project chaired by Save the Children UK brought charities and funders together to explore how to best manage funds to support long-term, place-based systemic change (PBSC).

As the learning partner for that work, we built a framework for thinking, acting and funding in a way that focusses on using place as the vehicle for social change with long-term, systemic change being the intended outcome.
