ACE Cardiff is very pleased to report that our recent visioning exercise, held on the 13th February at Howell’s School, was a real success, and cause for great encouragement. It was particularly gratifying to see so many of our staff and volunteers, from every wing of the charity, come together for the project. Those in attendance represented the dedicated heart of the charity, with teachers from TLC and ESOL, together with trustees, administrators, community liaisons and the chief executive officer, combining their talents to help assess and review the aims, policies and future projections of ACE. Representatives from Cardiff’s Third Sector Council (C3SC) and Cardiff Sixth Form College, two institutions who work closely and productively with ACE, were also kind enough to attend and involve themselves in the discussion.
It was hoped that the event would not only help refine and focus the vision held by all concerning the direction of the charity, and the developing nature of its assorted projects and good works, but also function as a team building exercise. Happily, both aims were satisfied, for much valuable feedback was provided, and indeed all in attendance reported that the interactive format helped foster a friendly and fun atmosphere.
ACE would like to thank all who attended for their enthusiasm and their commitment, and, owing to the success of the enterprise, we hope to be able to provide more such venues for open and inclusive debate and discussion in the near future. It is our ambition to always provide our volunteers with the opportunity to work together, develop their skills, and collaborate, for the good of the charity and each other.
