June 19, 2021 | 0 Comments

A Phase I Final Summary Report on research into Bermuda’s third sector is now available after six months of research involving stakeholder surveys, interviews, three interactive working sessions with stakeholders and international research of best practice.

A spokesperson said, ““Bermuda’s charities, non-profit organisations, foundations, donors, QUANGOs, private consultants and government officials all participated and today’s report provides a summary of the findings.

“Those same stakeholders are encouraged to register for the final session, Wednesday June 23rd to review the final snapshot results and to shape what comes next. Registration is still open via this online registration link or email info@centennial.bm.”

Anand Dholakia, researcher and project co-leader says, “More than 300 people have participated in the effort so far and the collective work has helped to identify the third sector’s priorities and shape a transformative vision for what it can look like in the future. This next working session will be our final gathering for the current Phase I.”

The spokesperson added, “All Third Sector stakeholders are urged to participate in the final working session; Shaping Next Steps Together, to walk through the key findings and takeaways, and to discuss the ideal process and leadership for Phase II, which will turn the recommendations into action.

“The online workshop is on Wednesday June 23rd, 12noon – 2pm.

“Today’s report and supporting documents including previously released findings at various stages of the project are available in full and can be downloaded with the links below.

Purpose of the research

“The purpose of this research is to provide accurate information to Bermuda’s third sector to help stakeholders determine whether they are meeting the needs of the community, whether there is room for improvement in the way organisations work together and if there is opportunity to collaborate, network and share resources for the benefit of all.

“All third sector organisations will be involved in determining whether a transformative third sector model is feasible for Bermuda and how it could be developed and who would lead the effort.

“The research phase of the Reimagining the Bermuda Third Sector initiative is funded by Centennial Bermuda Foundation and Bermuda Community Foundation with dedicated independent project leaders, Dr. Leslie Steede, Partner with Global Research and Anand Dholakia, Principal Associate with Community Science, managing the design, analysis, and conclusions. The research considers the views of all third sector stakeholder groups, which includes non-profit organisations, philanthropy and government working side-by-side as partners.”
