Creating the 2023 - 2028 vision for LOROS hospice

Crackerjack is very pleased to be supporting LOROS (providers of hospice care for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland) in the creation of its 2023 to 2028 vision.

LOROS provide free, high-quality, compassionate care and support to terminally ill adult patients, their family and carers across Leicestershire & Rutland. This important work relies on collaboration between numerous groups of people including employees, volunteers, healthcare professionals, local health and care bodies, hospitals, suppliers and fund-raising shops. Ensuring these people all have a clear and shared understanding of the vision is vital both in terms of people engagement and ensuring that future strategic plans align with the 2023 – 2028 LOROS vision.

Crackerjack is working closely with Rob Parkinson (CEO of LOROS) and his team to provide a comprehensive visioning process for the organisation including:

  • Visioning process planning, advice and consultancy (particularly around people engagement during the visioning process).
  • Facilitation of multiple visioning process workshops.
  • Creation of a rich picture visualising the LOROS 2023 – 2028 vision.

In the following article on the LOROS website, Rob describes the project and his hopes and aims for the work:

“The current strategic plan for LOROS ends in 2023, and we are now looking to set the vision for the organisation until 2028 (doesn’t that sound like the future?). To help us set this vision we need your help, so over the next few weeks we will be running workshops and launching online portals so that you can share your vision for the future of LOROS.

We have spaces on ‘visioning workshops’ (facilitated by John Ashton from Crackerjack Visual Thinking) which will allow individuals from around LOROS, and some of our external partners, to come together and discuss what the future might look like. In addition to this, we will also have online links so that everyone across the organisation can input into the vision – however you’d like to share it.

The goal will be to eventually draw a rich picture of what our combined vision for the organisation might look like – a literal image of what we collectively think the future looks like. This will give the Senior Leadership Team a firm platform to base the detailed plans against and deliver a strategy that will achieve the vision. A real collaborative approach to building our future.

Heads of Departments have been given the dates of the visioning workshops and the numbers we can invite (sadly, we simply don’t have enough spaces for the whole organisation). So if you have the energy to help in this vital task, please contact them in the first instance. But don’t worry, we’ve left a couple of workshops spare in December and if demand is too high these will be released (spaces by ballot) later in the month once we have all the workshop spaces filled.

Can’t attend a workshop? We’ve got you covered – our online portals will allow you to share your vision. Whether you’d like to write it down, paint it or make a poem out of it… we all express ourselves differently and we will have a drop box so that you can contribute. Just because you can’t make a workshop, doesn’t mean your voice won’t be heard. More details (and links) will follow and portals will remain open for as long as we can.

This is the first time we’ve done this, and hopefully offers a real way to get involved in setting a vision for the future. We hope you’ll join with us in building this picture in any way you can!”

Crackerjack first worked with Rob over 10 years ago to create a rich picture for Action Homeless (where Rob was in a similar role to his position at LOROS). It was heartening to hear about the positive effect that image had on that organisation and also great that Rob wanted use a visual thinking approach again to help take LOROS forward over the coming years.
