BIG HEARTS TEAM UP WITH NESTA TO BUILD NEW 2022-2025 STRATEGY
As Big Hearts is entering the final year of our strategy to reduce social isolation, we’ve partnered with the pioneering change and innovation agency NESTA to work on the various steps that will help our charity build a new strategic direction beyond 2021.
The People Powered Result team from NESTA is working with Big Hearts’ leadership team using a ‘Listen and learn’ methodology based on insights from programme beneficiaries, community partners, staff, volunteers, Hearts fans and local authorities.
Our Board of Trustees is meeting today, 19 February 2021, to explore the first results of a wide consultation that took place over the past couple of months.
Over 200 people from a wide range of groups have been consulted so far, answering our invitation to get involved in shaping the future of our charity through a detailed survey and online workshops.
– “I was really impressed with the food parcels and social check-ups you did during the first lockdown. Good idea to keep people safe and in touch with their community”.
– “I’m very proud of Big Hearts and my club. This is exactly what a football club should be about. Take a bow.”
– “As a social service worker, I’ve had the experience of an amazing service to my most vulnerable and isolated clients. Well done to all involved.”
We would like to thank all those who took the time to share their feedback and experience.
These are essential to help us review our current delivery model, which groups we should support and what our main ambitions within Scottish football and the Third Sector will be in the future!
