Result CIC’s Advisory Panel: welcome to our new member

Patrick_2019_main

Any healthy organisation needs advice and constructive challenge. Result CIC is no exception. Our Advisory Panel meets 3-4 times per year to review progress, check we are making the best decisions to achieve our social purpose, including the use of our resources, and ask good questions to let us check what we could be missing or doing better. As such the Panel performs

After a summer break the Advisory Panel reconvened and welcomed its new member, Patrick Davies.

Early this year, 2019, we were preparing our presentation to Cabinet Office for our tender to provide the new DELTA (Disability Empowers Leadership Talent) programme for disabled civil servants on the Civil Service’s Future Leaders Scheme. Hormoz and Jane benefited from some informal advice which Patrick was able to offer. When it comes to the Civil Service, he knows what he is talking about, with his 25 years’ diverse and senior experience in central Government including dealing, as Deputy Ambassador, with all government departments at one of the UK’s largest and busiest Embassies abroad, in Washington. We are delighted that Patrick accepted our invitation to join the Panel.

Our September meeting looked at the big picture for Result CIC including:

  • the balance of our work between managers and marginalised groups
  • our plans to develop two new strands of work in the arts sector and with homelessness
  • our sustainability, including financial
  • our communication, including work on our second Social Impact report (watch this space!).

There are a lot of uncertainties in the UK at the moment and the risks of these for marginalised people are proportionately greater. In our view this means that there are equally great opportunities for us to help. In such a situation, it makes an big difference to be able to draw on the combined wisdom of a lifelong equality and human rights expert such as Jackie Driver, legendary community activist and pioneer – Ruth Ibegbuna and a public sector leader with deep and broad domestic and international experience  – Patrick Davies. We are grateful to all three of them for their contribution and look forward to working with them as a team and steering Result CIC to maximise its positive impact.
