In March 2019 the Stuart Low Trust started developing a Theory of Change. We were keen to include participants in this process. Over 70 participants shared their thoughts on the issues that the Stuart Low Trust addresses and how it does this.

It is vital that we understand their needs, experiences and aspirations. This knowledge will help the staff to ensure that the activities delivered meet these.

We were particularly interested in participants' perspectives on local issues/need, our activities and participant-centred outcomes.We facilitated a range of round table discussions where participants were asked a series of questions that promoted discussion about these areas. We also invited participants to email in their feedback on these questions: 

  • Using your experience, tell us about the issues you think that people in Islington (and surrounding boroughs) face?
  • How does the Stuart Low Trust address these experiences?
  • How would you describe culture nature and wellbeing?
  • Using your definition of culture, nature and wellbeing, how would you categorise our activities?
