Continuing financial adversity among not-for-profit organisations, coupled with the need to ensure client needs are actually being achieved, has seen greater emphasis on ensuring value-for-money (VFM) in operational activities. However, the focus on achieving successful long-term outcomes, the needs of a diverse stakeholder base and the prevailing economic climate, means that achieving value-for-money in not-for-profit organisations is increasingly difficult.

This discussion café is collaboration between UWE Bristol and C3SC offering an opportunity for not-for-profit organisations to meet to explore Value-for-Money (VFM) in its widest sense, where participants will hopefully support and inspire each other with the aim of improving VFM in their respective organisations. Topics to be discussed will potentially include:

  • how VFM is assessed
  • decision-making processes that drive VFM, appropriate performance measures that contribute and support VFM
  • how VFM is embedded and championed in not-for-profit organisations.

Discussions will not include any political dimensions or the necessity to disclose any sensitive information. All participants will agree to keep discussions anonymous.

The event is in collaboration with C3SC and will be chaired by Dr Carl Evans of University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol, who is undertaking BAFA funded research exploring VFM in the charity sector. It is hoped that the research findings from this project will identify aspects of best-practice that could be adopted by organisations in the sector and will potentially lead to a model of best practice or VFM in the charity sector being developed.
