A group of 10 major charities have come together to produce a series of videos on management issues for charities.
The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, the British Heart Foundation, NCH and RNLI are among the backers of the £150,000 project which will tackle subjects such as communications and managing change. Each participant has contributed £10,000, and corporate sponsorship has also been secured from financial services company Zurich.
The consortium has appointed film company Firehouse Productions, which has previously made ads for aid agency World Vision, to make four videos.
The series will cover board management, managing impact, managing change and communications.
The project is the brainchild of Guide Dogs' chief executive Geraldine Peacock and charity consultant Mike Hudson who felt that existing videos did not tackle the specific issues of managing voluntary organisations.
