Share experiences of donor relationships and undertake joint advocacy with UK funders
The group provides a forum for Bond members to share their experience of relationships with UK funders, including DFID, the Big Lottery Fund and Comic Relief. It is open to all Bond members and meets approximately three times a year; other meetings may take place as needed.
A steering committee guides the group and any collective advocacy it undertakes, and meets to track donor information and organise group meetings.
Covid-19 Update: The group is working with Bond to influence DFID to relax their funding policies so NGOs can respond quickly to emerging challenges. A weekly update is posted through the group.
