Third Sector Podcast: Charity, disability and hidden leaders

This week's episode looks at the report Hidden Leaders: Disability leadership in civil society

In this month’s bumper special episode, features and analysis writer Rebecca Cooney and editor Emily Burt find out about the Hidden Leaders: Disability Leadership in Civil Society report, commissioned by the charity leaders body Acevo.

The report, published earlier this month, explored how Acevo and other senior leaders in the voluntary sector can create a more disability inclusive approach to leadership.

Rebecca and Emily are joined by one of the authors of the report, the disability activist Zara Todd, to discuss what the report found and what needs to happen now.

They also hear from Third Sector senior reporter Stephen Delahunty about the long-awaited Kids Company verdict and what it means for charities. 

And they share their coronavirus care package - good news stories from the sector this week.

This week it's Race for Nature’s Recovery, an initiative creates as a result of a partnership between the youth environmental charity Action for Conservation, the recruitment organisation Generation Success, the educational charity Students Organising for Sustainability UK and the Hackney-based mentoring and careers charity Voyage Youth.

The scheme aims to diversify the UK’s environmental sector by creating a raft of jobs for young people from black, Asian and minoritised ethnic backgrounds, who are aged between 16 and 24.
