RESET 2020 – Supporting the social sector through COVID-19

Back in March, as the potential impacts of COVID-19 began to unfold, The Xfactor Collective realised that it was likely to have a profound impact on the social sector. We wanted to do something to ensure that the organisations that do so much to support our society had the support they needed to survive the pandemic.

Equity Trustees, through their Sector Capacity Building Fund, came on board, and together we developed RESET 2020. It involved a program of free resources and advice, delivered via live broadcasts.

The topics for each session were informed by the insights from the RESET 2020 Research Study, which revealed some of the impacts of COVID-19, and the changing needs of social sector.

Phase 2 of the research project has just closed, which will help us understand the ongoing and evolving impacts of the pandemic. The data is currently being analysed to determine what future support is required.

“In times of rapid change, it is critical that we don’t make assumptions about what is happening on the ground. Grass-roots feedback that comes directly from community experience is so important in building insight and understanding.

The RESET 2020 Impact+Need Study was a great opportunity to hear the voices and experiences of smaller charities and NFPs as they adapted and responded to COVID-19.”

TESTIMONIALS

"Thank you The Xfactor Collective and Equity Trustees for the opportunity to engage in these free programs. At a time when there is so much need, but uncertainty around philanthropy and how best to approach it, the practical insights shared by your exceptional panelists have been invaluable."
KYLIE BUBERIS, STATE MANAGER SA, AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS PLUS

"The RESET 2020 program delivered by The Xfactor Collective is greatly needed by Australia’s for purpose sector. Indeed, we are fortunate that Julia Keady possesses understanding of all sides of the sector, together with the networks and passion to deliver what the sector is crying out for: access to best practice knowledge, creativity and resources. As a presenter the program was flawlessly run, with timely briefings, pre-prepared questions, seamless IT. But I’ve also listened in as a practitioner to sessions on ‘events in the Covid-19 world and others’."
BELINDA COLLINS, SWINBURNE

"The RESET 2020 series was outstanding! Fabulous quality of speakers with such insight it was impossible not to get value from the time spent on line. In a time when webinars are so prolific it is essential to choose carefully and I am delighted I chose RESET 2020. I just wish there were more of these practical and informative sessions. Congratulations to The XFactorCollective for such innovation and information. Nothing but the best."
KIRSTY MAWER, EXECUTIVE OFFICER, BASS COAST COMMUNITY FOUNDATION (RURAL COMMUNITY FOUNDATION, PARTICIPANT)

"Many will ask themselves how they responded to the pandemic. RESET 2020 provided me as the Director and Founder of Real Time Learning with so much inspiration and encouragement in challenging times. Thank you to those funders that made this series possible. Each session provided valuable input that I was able to share with my team and apply in very meaningful ways. The word often used to describe such times was “unprecedented”. I liken these times to sailing a ship through unchartered waters. Leading in these times takes courage and can be lonely at times. Julia and her panels made a difference by helping participants see the challenges the pandemic posed as opportunities and I look forward to tuning in to upcoming sessions of RESET 2020!"
