Mmmm, points to ponder

Mmmm, points to ponder

Recently we were asked to contribute to an organisation's evaluation of itself.  In doing that, we were reminded that it’s always tough to ask probing questions, whatever they are to be used for.  Here at Hope Trust we are also routinely asking people questions as we try to evaluate just how well we are doing at the different activities we are organising and delivering.  So much time and effort goes into each and every one, both from our volunteers and ourselves, that it would be a shame if we were missing the mark. It is only when you ask direct questions that you seem to get direct answers!  When the feedback is positive, it’s easy to be encouraged, the challenge is how we deal with those comments that point out our flaws. Yet it seems to us that it is only when we know exactly where we are, that we can move closer to where we want to be.

We really do want to identify what’s good, what needs changing and what (if anything) should be let go of so that we make the best of the time and effort put in by so many to make what we do of maximum benefit for all those we serve.  So, if you want to comment on anything Hope Trust does, or should do, feel free to get in touch at This email address is being protected from spambots.
