Your comments, our response and planned actions:

“You didn’t show all of the video on a survivor’s story which was really disappointing.”

The audio from the survivor was played in full, but due to the settings at the venue it started from the beginning after finishing, creating the impression that we didn’t play all of it.

What we will do next time: we will try to disable the function that plays clips on a loop.

“To be honest the venue was hard to find and the directions link only got me lost”

We apologise the directions we included got you lost.

What we will do next time: we will include better instructions with maps and timings to make it easier to find the venue.

“A bit more information on the workshops (rather than just a title) to help inform which will be useful.”

What we will do next time: we will work with workshop facilitators to ensure we provide more information, including style of delivery. Thank you for your suggestion.

“A later starting time would really be appreciated so that those of us making a large effort to travel down from the North East or beyond do not have to always walk in late to events.”

It is always difficult balancing convenient timings with enough content to justify the event price, but we are taking your feedback on board.

What we will do next time: we will start our next event at 10:30, finishing at 16:00. Thank you for your suggestion.

“The day was well chaired and to time, the speakers (largely) excellent and there was a real buzz and enthusiasm for the whole event”

We are delighted with your feedback, thank you for taking the time to let us know.

“The presentation from Temporary Superintendent Deborah Alderson, Northumbria Police was excellent and has enabled me to identify a change locally which would be in line with other developments”

We are pleased with your feedback, we will make sure we let Deborah know.

“Very inspiring event. I wish more commissioners around the country would attend and take on board the benefits of commissioning a Respect model.”

We are delighted you enjoyed the event. We are working hard to ensure more Commissioners take on board the benefits of commissioning Respect accredited services.
