  9. Compass
  10. Parent Carers Aiming High

A  Taster Day was held to share the Learn to lead toolkit and ways of working with commissioners and practitioners, which was an exciting beginning.

“I thoroughly enjoyed yesterday and really appreciated your time and willingness to share.  In response I have come into work today and as we speak we are cutting out hexies and ordering what we need for a sticky board.  I have discussed with staff and young people this morning and we are going to start off by developing a project on activities for the summer … see where it takes us!” Bridget Drew-Spyer :Quarriers

“By completion of the ASMILEY exercise, the penny dropped as to how we can use this with young people and I think we have learnt a very valuable tool today. It’s exciting to think how this can work for the children and young people we work with and I think it has the potential to be transformative. I also think what I’ve learnt today will be massively helpful in terms of my staff team, running team meetings, building a positive culture and gaining consensus and planning our work individually and as a team.” Donna Baber CEO Time 2 Share
