Currently the Paul Sartori Foundation is working on a new strategy plan which includes updating the mission statement, aims and objectives of the charity and we would like to invite key stakeholders to engage in this important decision making process.

We are inviting service users, their family members, the Foundations voting members, volunteers and staff to join a focus group. The purpose of the group is to collate participant’s votes, attitudes and feelings on our strategy plan and proposed changes.

The results from the group will provide qualitative feedback which will be handed to the Trustees for consideration in their decision making process. A strategy plan draft proposal will then be presented at the AGM on 17 July 2013.

The ideas for consideration by the focus group will be distributed via an online platform.

For stakeholders who do not have access to a computer and wish to take part in the process, access to the platform will be made available by making an appointment at the Paul Sartori Café where assistance will be provided.  Or if you prefer, a paper copy of the discussion points may be posted. All returned paper copy responses will be uploaded on to the online system by the management team at Haven Road and will be included in the final Focus Group report.

The programme that we are using to facilitate this process is called VocalEyes and the benefits of using this system includes:

  • Imparting stakeholders with the power to influence the decision making process of the Foundation.
  • Allowing participants the opportunity to put forward their opinions from the comfort of their home computer.
  • Providing the organisation with an online stakeholder tool to record interested party votes and comments as evidence of engagement.
  • Enabling stakeholders to put their ideas and thoughts across against a particular question / subject without other participants knowing who they are (Administrators only are able to view participant names).
