RNIB takes part in the Third Sector podcast talking about the positive impact of collaboration in the sight loss sector
Lucinda and Russ are joined by Campbell Chalmers, Strategic Engagement Lead for the third sector at the RNIB and Joseph Howes, Chief Executive of the grant-making charity Buttle UK, to discuss how voluntary organisations can benefit from working together.
Campbell describes the need for persistence and maintaining focus on the desired outcome of a collaboration, along with other lessons from the RNIB’s work with the sight loss sector during the pandemic. This has included changes in internal culture.
Joseph talks about Buttle’s experience of joining groupings such as the End Child Poverty coalition. He stresses the importance of taking time to build trust between organisations and drive long term change.
