Testimonials

A fantastic day of learning from Brendan Martin & the other sites in Britain and Ireland that are implementing Buurtzorg principles. … Definitely a good way forward in order to adapt to service demands.

Alec Murray, Project Manager, Living Well in Communities, Healthcare Improvement Scotland

You could just see from the smile on the grandson and the patient’s face [on supporting a return to mobility that meant the patient was able to walk outside the home for the first time in a long time] that the nursing team had really achieved something important in their lives.

Member of the Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust Neighbourhood Nursing Team

BZBI were very supportive to the Project Board and wider stakeholders, taking the time to explain the Buurtzorg model and principles, providing appropriate challenge to the Board and LWL Workers, as and when required (particularly around the self-management principle); and assisting with training sessions and creative problem-solving.

Senior Commissioner, London Borough of Newham

Thank you. The whole process has been great for the team to develop and move forward. I’ve been aware of the shift in our thinking as I’m rewriting our Policies and Procedures. It’s great to know that we’ve still got the connection with Brendan and yourself and the larger community.

Brilliant. Such a pleasure to have someone who so obviously knows their issue, deals with it in an even-handed manner, and can write so clearly.

Jeff Powell, Bretton Woods Project

Many thanks for all the help and inspiration you gave us and me in particular.

Max Lawson, Oxfam GB

Charlotte Chung, Policy and Research Manager, Social Enterprise UK.

The event went really well — well done and thank you. It was really well planned and Veena Vasista’s facilitation was amazingly good.

Fiona O’Cleirigh, Cashback for Interns campaign

On behalf of the ITF, I would like to thank you very much for all your work. The project has provided information and analysis of an extremely high quality which has benefited the political and industrial work of the ITF, and stimulated new policies and relationships. The ITF looks forward to an ongoing programme of work with Public World.

David Cockroft, International Transport Workers’ Federation

Congratulations on organising such a successful event. It got me thinking about the subject more deeply than I had previously considered it, which was the objective. Veena Vasista did a particularly good job of guiding the debate.

James Sutton, Founder, Bloomtrigger.com

Public World has helped us build bridges with non-traditional partners through a careful balancing act: Evenhandedness without detachment. Expertise without technocracy. Values without dogma.

Meike van Ginneken, World Bank

Public World produced the first research on international cooperation between global unions on precarious work. This was a sensitive and difficult process which the team handled brilliantly. The work proved to be central in building international solidarity between unions
