Raise the Bar Roadshows

Wednesday 21st August 2019

We challenged ourselves to raise the bar and build on the quality of what we offer as an organisation. As part of our commitment to raise the quality of experience for children and young people we ran nine roadshows across the region attracting over 300 leaders. The roadshows gave us the opportunity to bring leaders together and offer updates and workshops from both a Regional and Headquarters perspective led by key members of staff, key volunteers and external partners including Urban Saints and the Additional Needs Alliance.

We have had some great feedback and hope that we can build on the roadshow concept next session. Some quotes from leaders who attended . . .

Leader, Midlands said:

“The roadshows provided a welcome opportunity to meet with leaders and staff members, the high-quality venue and workshops offered shows that the BB values its volunteers and their input”

Leader, South West said:

“I left feeling much more positive and enjoyed meeting new people to share ideas and frustrations”

Leader, North East said:

“The quality of the resources is really good”

Natalie Whipday, Director for England & Wales said:

“The roadshows have given us a real opportunity to meet with leaders and highlight the work taking place across the Region. More so there was the opportunity to share the challenges currently faced at all levels and identify together some solutions and priorities for the coming session.”

Mark Arnold, Additional Needs Ministry Director, Urban Saints said:

“It has been really exciting, and a great privilege, to partner with The Boys’ Brigade for the ‘Raise The Bar’ roadshows over the last few months. Experiencing the professionalism and enthusiasm that the team put into these events, sharing in the passion and commitment of the participants to all that the BB is doing, and being able to help everyone along on their journey to equip the BB to be accessible and inclusive for everyone with additional needs, a place where all belong, has been a total joy. I very much hope, and fully anticipate, that Urban Saints and The Boys’ Brigade will partner and collaborate in other ways going forward, and I for one can’t wait!”
