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.
Spending time in the company of the PurpleSpace community makes me realise how lucky I am to have the opportunity to lead a disability network - the Networkology foundation know-how is beyond brilliant.
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?
