The Programme Team coordinates, supports and commissions activities across all aspects of the Golden Key programme.
Holding responsibility for supporting the wider activities and objectives of the programme, the Programme Team supports the sharing of best practice and learning across the Golden Key Partnership and further afield, reporting back to the National Lottery Community Fund and communicating experiences with other Fulfilling Lives projects.
The Spark Team
Held within the Programme Team, the Spark Team aims to facilitate, support and enable individuals and organisations across the Golden Key partnership to make system change happen.
The Spark Team approach to change
The approach to change is flexible and responsive to the needs of the partnership. It focusses on investment in the people who make up the partnership, with the aspiration of activating a network of people who have the power and agency to, individually and collectively, make positive changes in the system for people with complex needs.
The following values are at the centre of the Spark Team approach:
Supporting people to take action
We believe that everyone has the opportunity, and is in a unique position, to influence change.
Valuing knowledge, experience & ideas
We trust in people to use their knowledge, experience and ideas to co-create the future.
Empowering the people who do the work to make the change
We place value in people understanding their motivation to create change and recognising that they have the power to take action.
We’re always on the lookout for connections and we recognise that connectedness can lead to opportunities.
