The story of NPC Ignites 2016

Burning issues + bold action

Closing keynote

On 12 October 2016, leaders from the charity sector and beyond gathered at 99 City Road London for NPC’s 6th annual conference NPC Ignites. The day was designed to help them take a step back from their day-to-day work, keep pace with change + plug into the latest thinking.

Speakers from charities, funders, government, the private sector lined up to set out how organisations can face the future and deliver ever greater impact for the causes and beneficiaries we exist to serve. Ultimately, the message was clear: charities have a crucial role to play in achieving social change, and there is no time to waste. We need to work together to lift our sights, to develop and deliver innovative solutions, to build the evidence base for our work and learn from it—and above all else be bold in these times of change.
