Welcome to the
Charity Leaders' Exchange
The experience-sharing network for forward-thinking Charity Leaders, helping to drive positive change.
If you are grappling with a strategic challenge, planning organisational change or just looking to compete within the current economic climate, often the best place to look for help is from your peer group. You’ll find that many of our Charity Leaders’ Exchange (CLE) members have already successfully navigated the same issues – we bring those people with the relevant experience directly to you. Made up of medium and large Charities, Not-For-Profit organisations, CICs and Social Enterprises with turnovers of £1m+, you’ll find yourself in good company.
The CLE provides intelligently selected guidance to help inform your decision making. Structured around topics that will challenge you and your team to think differently, it facilitates connections between like-minded senior charity leaders and provides easy-to-access insights into their experiences.
