What Next? Finances
As What Next? has grown it continues to develop the level of debate, trust and action across us all. But it also has become much harder to maintain. We’ve spoken about the What Next? model at length over the last few months, and about the need to rethink as we’re not currently sustainable: in fact, in our current iteration we can’t feasibly continue to the end of the year. If you can attend a meeting at 11:00 on Thursday 3rd at Sadler’s Wells to talk this through, let us know. And if you are planning on supporting What Next? through a donation this year; do consider it now. If everyone who came to the meetings and used the resources paid £50 per year we would be able to continue. We don't want to become a membership organisation or exclude anyone, but we can’t continue as we are. All ideas very welcome – including radical rethinks of the model.
