What people say
"The vision and practical tools from Christian Distinctives group are spot on target - increasing Christ-centred organisational effectiveness across our sector. It's been a privilege to benefit personally from the group's work.
I've been directly involved in staff attitude surveys in secular work in the past and am I am really impressed by Aspire for the Christian sector. It is a comprehensive and very helpful diagnostic tool for a Christian organisation providing a range of insightful data into an organisation. As such it creates a springboard for change in a focused direction; it also represents excellent value for money!"

"The Aspire self assessment tool has been of great assistance to YMCA Norfolk in evidencing the Christian effectiveness and distinctiveness of our Association enabling us to celebrate our successes and better recognise areas for growth and development. It has encouraged us to develop further our Christian values and ethos and apply it to all areas of our work."
Chief Executive, Norfolk YMCA
"It has been very helpful using Aspire to see where our strengths and weaknesses lie and to find out what people are really feeling on the ground. We used Aspire to shape the next year's action plan. We are doing it again, to monitor our progress and highlight next steps."

"We wanted to measure whether our Christian ethos was actually experienced on the ground and to have evidence of our ethos to back-up our GORs. Aspire helped us do that, highlighting specific areas that needed improvement. Now we have a baseline to build on and a measurable way for us to monitor progress. A very very helpful tool for a CEO."
Chief Executive - Mission Care
