Thank you to our stakeholders28 March 2017

Published 28 March 2017
Stakeholder Survey raises £520 for the Community Leadership Programme. Our Stakeholder Survey is carried out biennially and gathers feedback from a range of stakeholders on their perception of WDH, how they want to be communicated with and how they think we could improve.  This year, in an effort to increase response rates, we donated £5 for each response to our Community Leadership Programme as an incentive to complete the survey. We received 104 responses, raising £520.  This will part fund a young person’s place on our Outward Bound Skills for Life Programme, which is a 19 day intensive programme.  The course can provide life changing experience for a young person, aiming to develop self-confidence and self-belief, communication, resilience and team working skills and showing individuals how to make the most of the opportunities they’re given.
