On the 1-year anniversary of the launch of The Real Toolkit, we would like to thank everyone who has given us feedback, inspired us and challenged us!

We have had a lot of feedback from on the website and have loved hearing people telling us how they use it. People have told us how much they like the simplicity and ease of use of the site.

We currently have over 50 guides from finance to building relationships. We have heard from a lot of people on what themes/guides they would like to see and will be using this feedback to create new guides.

We have been busy gathering feedback and input from care experienced people and members of the workforce over the last year to make the real toolkit even better – we are currently updating the young people page and will have some exciting changes to announce soon….  Watch this space!

We have been reflecting recently on the importance of language and have been making small changes on the website to reflect this feedback. We will be making big changes to be announced soon and are currently having fortnightly session for feedback and ideas for the workforce pages. We are always looking to add information on resources and support for Care experienced people and members of the workforce – please get in touch if you would like your organisation/services added to the site.

We have identified some key themes and guides that we are aiming to launch in the new year and are currently accepting new members of the advisory group, please get in touch if you are interested.

It has been a great year for The Real Toolkit, and it would not have been possible without our advisory board members (both old and new), the amazing designer duo SW&Co Design and everyone who has supported us, attended our events and accessed the website.

Thank you.
