SYMPOSIUM ON SUSTAINABLE QUALITY

IN THE COMMUNITY & VOLUNTARY SECTOR

Friday 2nd December 2016, Millstream Plaza, University of Limerick, 10:00am

SOLA, The Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Quality in the Community and Voluntary Sector is a collaboration between DFI, UL and Johnson and Johnson.  The concept of SOLA developed from a partnership forged in 2010 between Professor of Statistics at UL Eamonn Murphy (emeritus) and the Disability Federation of Ireland (DFI).

The mission of SOLA (based at the University of Limerick) is to empower individuals and organisations in the community, voluntary and disability sector by engaging in research, education and training to implement proven governance and sustainable quality systems.

We are currently planning our 3rd annual Symposium to take place on Friday 2nd December 2016. This year we ask how organisations and individuals can move “from providing a service to being of service”. This will be of particular interest to Disability Organisation Managers, Chairs, Board Members, Frontline Staff, Funders of Disability Services, SOLA-UL/DFI Graduates, Quality Professionals, Students and individuals with an interest in quality

The Symposium will explore;

  • A review of the findings from research using Lean Principals to enhance transport services for persons with a disability
  • Researching the potential of Quality systems to protect a persons’ rights as enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of persons with a Disability
  • Practical improvements resulting from the implementation the Quality Management System (QMS)PQASSO

The above presentations will be followed by a 30 minute workshop allowing delegates to input into the research findings.

The afternoon session will begin with feedback from each of the workshops followed by a panel discussion and Q&A
