This year, The Rank Foundation’s annual conference was held in Leeds with the theme ‘Take Stock and Reset’.

The challenges of the pandemic greatly influenced the third sector and consequently the conference. With this in mind, we held yoga and mindfulness sessions as we brought together RankNet members, Time to Shine leaders, Rank Aspire members, beneficiary organisations and external funders.

The delegates participated in interactive insight and foresight panels, a leadership seminar, and the Time to Shine showcases, with special musical performances in the evening.  It was the biggest event since 2019 for the Foundation.

It was humbling to see how leaders in our network adapted their organisations to the challenges of the pandemic and their hopes for the future going forward.  We would like to thank everyone who attended and participated both in person and digitally.

“Don’t wait for the storm to pass, learn to dance in the rain”

The Recovery Grant Impact film, which was shown at the conference, is now on The Rank Foundation’s YouTube channel along with the 8 in-depth films of each organisation who featured.
