  • Wilson Home Trust Workshop Update

    Following on from the survey undertaken in February this year, workshops were held in May and early June to share the findings from the surveys with families and organisations who the Trust supports. Ten workshops were held in areas from Whangarei in the North, to Rotorua in the south and comments, ideas and information shared. This information has now been collated and summarised into the document shown here. This information will assist the Committee of Management with both strategic and operational planning and it is our intention to continue to engage and seek input from beneficiaries and other stakeholders as we work through this process. Some of the areas identified in the document are already being addressed, specifically those on communication frequency and channels, grant funding and resourcing, while some will require further planning and discussion.
