What our members say...

We had taken part in a national benchmark exercise but were overwhelmed by the actions recommended. So, we ran some lived-experience focus groups and bingo - we got more useful information in those sessions than we ever had before.

I once heard someone say he was the first disabled person he had ever met. That sums up the isolating experience of having a disability. The workshop I went on unlocked the fear of being who I am - of sharing my experiences - of being my brilliant self at work.

We needed to bring people together to ask some big questions. Did our strategy have focus? Were we executing it adequately? Were we rewarding our volunteers correctly? Did our executive sponsor have our backs? Ultimately, how would we know we were doing well as a network?
