About Foundation


What is it like to work for Foundation

Leadership
Leadership
The senior management team at Foundation involved all staff in the development of the organisation's three year Strategic Plan 2012 - 2015. This involved meeting staff and customers at a series of "World Cafés" at which issues facing the organisation were discussed, and staff had the opportunity to put forward their ideas, comments and suggestions. Some staff also accompanied customers to customer meetings to assist them to take part.

Foundation’s staff conference brings all staff together once a year. This event has some business focus but the remainder of the day is spent on non-work related activities, followed by an evening event with entertainment. This event is about bringing all staff together and thanking them for their work over the year. Foundation’s most recent conference was held at York Racecourse.

Foundation’s core function is to support the most vulnerable people in society. Staff are encouraged to enhance their personal development by sitting on the boards of other charitable organisations.
