To learn more about open working, listen to this conversation between the director of Third Sector Lab, Ross McCulloch, and CEO of the William Grant Foundation, Nick Addington:

Third Sector Lab are offering fully-funded support, training and guidance for third sector organisations and funders to transform how they use online comms as a tool for more open and transparent working. This work is funded by the Robertson Trust and the National Lottery Community Fund

Delivered online, the programme is open to staff and volunteers of third sector organisations across the UK. Places are limited. We are keen to receive applications from people working in any role from service delivery to senior management. This programme is an excellent way of spreading the responsibility for communications across your organisation.

The next cohort of the Open Working Programme is open to grantholders of the National Lottery Community Fund and the Robertson Trust and will begin in mid 2024.

Through Open Working we can save money and make better use of our resources. Everyone should want to employ this way of working and I strongly believe many can benefit from this kind of training.
