strategy: caring breaks
Caring Breaks is a charity that supports the families of people with learning disabilities. It's existing 5-year strategy 2014-19 needed to be updated in light of funding changes and introduction of Self Directed Support (SDS). This posed major challenges and also opportunities for Caring Breaks.
McGarry Consulting helped Caring Breaks to redefine their offering, focus their resources more effectively and drastically reshape their strategic goals to ensure medium-long term sustainability.
McGarry Consulting helped senior Caring Breaks staff present and facilitate discussions with their Board to ensure the significant changes were understood and bought into. McGarry Consulting also helped Caring Breaks to communicate this change to adults with learning difficulties, their parents/carers, staff, Health Trust and other parties; and involve them in the process of shaping how the new goals would be delivered.
