I want to start by wishing you all a very Happy New Year! I hope you had an enjoyable and safe festive season, and are ready for 2017. I certainly am ready to tackle the New Year and for all of the exciting events and developments that will take place.

The first big development of the year will take place when the UK Vision Strategy evaluation report is published this month. We are already working in partnership with the UK Vision Strategy, VISION 2020 UK and the England Vision Strategy on a collaborative sector response to the evaluation. This will be a major step forward for all involved.

We expect the response to the evaluation to be a major part of the TPT Family’s activity in future and it will form a big part of the business plan and budget that will be presented to our Trustees on January 24, alongside the continuation and further development of our existing activities.

We have an exciting year ahead and I look forward to working with everyone on this. Hopefully there will be further exciting developments on this before next month’s blog!
