What can you learn from a 5-year-old?

It has been a busy and unpredictable 60 months. This is quite a milestone for our not-so-little team. 

Every 5-year-old is special, but whether they are bookish or boisterous or a bit of both, they are nearly always quick learners.

That is true for us too. We’ve learned a lot and we feel so much more confident that what we do is making the difference we want to see in the world.

We’ve nurtured health networks, bringing together people to connect, share their learning and reduce health inequalities in four countries. We’ve created learning partnerships, joining up learning, improvement, creating communities that share their best ideas and making it enjoyable for more than 3,000 people.

To date, we’ve helped 79 organisations tap into their potential, create ambitious strategies with their staff and transform how they operate. These include:

  • 30 charities
  • 24 NHS organisations
  • 12 research institutions
  • 8 government agencies
  • 5 businesses.

We could not have delivered our programme without Kaleidoscope. They bring a combination of in-depth knowledge of health and care, forensic thinking, creativity and fun.

Kaleidoscope’s ability to design and deliver innovative events to engage stakeholders and resolve local issues was crucial to the success of the programme.
