May 2019 Newsletter: Some big changes to Losing Control!

Dear Losing Control Networkers,

After feedback from the advisory council and loads of conversations with members of the losing control network, we’ve taken some time to reflect….

We’re losing control too!

There is a significant SHIFT, with our resources and energy focusing on:

– Supporting individuals within the network to connect, learn from, challenge and help each other
– Having a stronger emphasis on inclusion in all we do from across backgrounds, experiences and sectors
– Losing Control won’t be created and driven by The Social Change Agency and Practical Governance… we will be working alongside you to shape and deliver opportunities, support and highlight all our work, and co-produce the annual event so that the network is led, controlled and shaped by YOU

If you want to read more about what this means in practice for funding, decision-making and action, take a peek here at what has come out of the Losing Control Advisory Council Meetings – feel free to leave a comment yourself too

Keep an eye out on your inbox in the upcoming weeks for lots of exciting opportunities to shape, contribute to and get more from the network!

Here is Losing Control advisory council member Mark Wilkinson talking more about the changes we’re making:
