The mental and physical wellbeing of fundraisers and charity workers has been tested a lot this past year. The coronavirus pandemic has turned the fundraising sector upside down, and placed added stress on the fundraising efforts of non-profit organisations and fundraisers.
With the start of a new financial year, and with lockdown restrictions beginning to ease, the wellbeing of professionals in the charity sector has never been more important. However, it arguably has never been at more risk either. As the leader, or member, of a non-profit team, how will you balance the need for income, delivery and security with both your own, and your colleagues, wellbeing needs?
That’s why, this month’s webinar is a virtual summit focusing on wellbeing in the charity workplace. If you’re looking to support yourself and your team, then our Fundraising Everywhere Charity Workplace Wellbeing Virtual Summit is something you wouldn't want to miss.
Take a look at our insight into the summit below, including location, time, date and speaker highlights.
