Our sincere thanks to those who participated in Towards 2025 consultation meetings and provided highly valuable feedback on the NGINZ Board's proposals.
The NGINZ Board met in late April and early May to consider your feedback, and a summary of your feedback and the Board’s response and decisions is available here. More detail is available in the feedback papers listed to the right.
In brief - There has been resounding endorsement for what the NGINZ Board is seeking to achieve – a unified industry, a stronger voice, and sustainable and equitable funding. But what we have heard is the industry is very divided on what we have proposed. Too divided to achieve any enduring "unity". However, out of the consultation process, including vocal opposition, what has emerged is a willingness to work together to form a nursery-led industry body and recognition this requires a new model and significant changes. And recognition that this requires more time, open minds, willingness to engage and commitment – from all of us.
Further details on the results of consultation are available through the links on the right – or you can request a printed copy by contacting Frances on firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can expect further communication from us in the weeks and months ahead. Please now take the time to understand the feedback we received and decisions taken. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
Once again, thank you for your participation and valuable feedback.
You should play your part in helping shape the future of our industry, register here to keep in touch.
