“What a year” – a phrase so often said but perhaps never before with the same emphasis… When viewing the last year through an Advantaged Thinking lens, what do we learn?”
Andrew Croft, Chair of Trustees
The year 2020-21 was defined by the Coronavirus pandemic and the lockdowns and restrictions put in place to handle the crisis. For the Foyer Federation and its members, there were both positives and negatives that stemmed from this most unusual year.
The pandemic prompted us to deepen our listening practices – both with young people and staff members – to ensure our response was the right one. It pushed us to deliver our offer creatively and to consider new ways of working. The response of the sector, and our network in particular, to the pandemic highlighted the power of Advantaged Thinking practices during difficult times.
The tenacity and resilience of both young people and Foyer staff teams has been nothing short of inspirational during this challenging year.
