Charity Chat is a weekly podcast for everyone interested in the vital work being carried out by the charity sector. Reflecting the diversity and passion for the sector, we are a not-for-profit forum for learning, commentary and contribution for a more robust, transparent and effective charity sector. Come on, join in.
E268 - The Charity Spark
We sat down with Beckie Denny, Founder and Director of The Charity Spark to talk about how they are on a mission to help the charity sector do more even more good.

E267 - Lived Experience With Charlotte Lamb
In this episode we speak with Charlotte Lamb, Principal for Involvement and Decision Making at NPC, about lived experience. We talk about why charities should consider bringing lived experience into their organisational culture and why this is important and could help them to thrive.
E266 - Salaries In The Charity Sector
We sat down with Phil Kerry, CEO at New Horizon Youth Centre to discuss salaries in the charity sector. This week’s episode has a slightly different approach to some of our other chats as Phil wouldn’t consider himself an “expert” in this area but is very open about his opinions on the topic. Phil and myself talk candidly about the subject but it should be stated to the listeners that these are very much the views of us as individuals.
E265 - Using Comms To Help Tackle Inequalities with Andy Mortimer
This week, we sat down with Andy Mortimer, Head of Communications at Co-op Foundation to talk about how you can use your comms strategy to help tackle inequalities. We take a look at the specific approach the Co-op Foundation took to building out their strategy; explore the importance of understanding the why of communication, not just the how; and, doing all of this without straying away from their golden thread of putting young people and partners at the centre of how they work.
E264 - Churches And The Charity Sector With Helen Gray
